Product Details

Praise

“Each chapter glows like a small, precious jewel.”
The Washington Post

“Alev Croutier’s grown-up fairy tale, with its strangely mesmerizing events, operates in a wonderful space between story and history and lures the reader into that place directly.”
— Diane Johnson, author of Le Mariage

“A beautiful little book … like a rare perfume or an exquisite painting, it commands our complete, rapt attention.”
Roanoke Times

“This is an enchanting tale of love: a man dreams of a woman while she dreams of a man who is dreaming of her. It reminds me of Silk by Alessandro Baricco, and One Thousand and One Nights, but Alev Croutier has a voice of her own, soft and poetic, like music in a Turkish garden.”
— Isabel Allende, author of Daughter of Fortune
