"Haddawy's translation is easily the clearest, most fluent and most readable I have met....What is delightful and memorable about these tales is the immediacy of their created worlds.... [Haddawy's translation] has style, it has elegance, it has precision." ―A. S. Byatt, London Sunday Times

From the critically acclaimed translator of The Arabian Nights comes a volume of the four most popular later stories: "Sindbad the Sailor," "Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves," "Ala al-Din (Aladdin) and the Magic Lamp," and "Qamar al-Zaman." Readers will discover in each a world of high flamboyance and startling beauty, humor, and magic, and lessons of loyalty and love's endurance.

From the Inside Flap:

Full of mischief and valor, ribaldry and romance, The Arabian Nights is a work that has enthralled readers for centuries.

The origins of The Arabian Nights are obscure. About a thousand years ago a vast number of stories in Arabic from various countries began to be brought together; only much later was the collection called The Arabian Nights or the Thousand and One Nights.

About the Author:

Husain Haddawy was born and grew up in Baghdad, taught English and comparative literature at various American universities, wrote art criticism, and is now living in retirement in Thailand.
