From the Publisher
Annotation This is a new look at the world's most famous storyteller, Scheherazade (spelled Sharazad here), whose 1,001 stories are the basis for ARABIAN NIGHTS. Sharazad offered to marry the Sultan at a time when he was killing his wives the morning after the wedding night to prevent any possibility of infidelities. She would begin a story each night so that he would keep her alive in order to hear its conclusion the following evening. Just as she was finally running out of stories, her sister discovered this tale's narrator, a maimed 13-year-old girl named Marjan, capturing some children's attention with a story while visiting the palace. Marjan soon became a harem girl, risking her life by sneaking out into the city at night to find stories for Sharazad to tell to the Sultan.
