Críticas:

"Marvelously engaging. . . . These are great stories, and Hanan Al-Shaykh tells them splendidly. . . . [She] is one of Egypts's most highly-regarded novelists, and her decision to present new translations of (some of) Shahrazad's tales most likely raised a few eyebrows. We are fortunate, though, to have an author of her caliber to take on this project. Language in her hands is always supple and controlled, and the tales bounce merrily along with plenty of momentum and linguistic verve. . . . There's a reason why these stories have survived so long; they're fun and unpredictable, occasionally moving and, most of all, populated by an array of characters we still recognize on a daily basis. Al-Shaykh is to be thanked for reminding us of what's been here, available to us, all along." --"Pop Matters"
"Imaginative. . . . As one story segues into the next, effortlessly, patterns emerge that depict a Muslim world far different from the conservatism, the fundamentalism, that has hijacked so much of the contemporary Islamic world. . . . A delightful romp." --"Counterpunch"
"The Lebanese writer Hanan al-Shaykh performs a great service in retelling [the "Arabian Nights"] in her new book that also features a superb introduction by Mary Gaitskill. Al-Shaykh has shifted the camera angles, as it were, and trained the spotlight on the characters--and especially the female characters. We get more of the essence of these stories, their anarchic humor and cheerful sadism, the horror and delight they all seem to take in 'the cunning of women.'" --NPR, "Lost and Found: 5 Forgotten Classics Worth Revisiting"
"[al-Shaykh] brings the modern fiction writer's gift for psychological complexity to the rich-but-streamlined quality of the originals. . . . Read through knowing you're getting the very best of "The Arabian Nights."" --"The Atlantic"
"A haunting collection of stories about women who, if not always heroic, are resilient, funny, sexual, and, above all, sma

"A treat and a trap for story lovers. Like a contemporary Shahrazad, al-Shaykh has rendered 19 little masterpieces into a wondrously warm, ribald and hilarious concoction."
