Product Details


“The Iliad and Odyssey of medieval Persia, a rollicking, magic-filled heroic saga . . . in an interpretation so fluent that it is a pleasure to sit down and lose oneself in it.”—The New York Times Book Review

“A marvelous dovetailing of fantasy, history and religion . . . filled with lyrical resonance . . . [Readers] will love losing themselves in this complex yet ancient world of the imagination.”—The Washington Post Book World

“It’s hard to think of an epic more dazzlingly splendid. . . . Farooqi has given world literature a gift.”—Time

“It is a testament to the quality of Farooqi’s rendering of the text into English that he both conveys a sense of the art of the ‘sweetlipped historians’ and ‘nimble scribes of fancy,’ and produces a real page-turner.”—The Times Literary Supplement
“[A] revelatory translation of a masterpiece of world literature . . . unequivocally an amazing piece of publishing history.”—The Buffalo News
