This review is from: Stranger Magic: Charmed States & the Arabian Nights (Paperback)
Stranger Magic offers an unparalleled open door into what lies beneath and beyond the stories of 1001 Nights. Marina Warner peppers her commentary on the tales with her usual startling erudition where other less persistent writers would rely merely on anecdote. An essential read for anyone seriously interested, even "just interested" in the history of fiction.
But, for all this, the book is fully accessible, and wonderful bedtime reading!!!
