The Caravanserai Stories
Eight strangers were clustered around the campfire of the distant caravanserai –– silhouetted, ragged, and ripened by adventure. As the flames licked the darkness, sparks spitting up into the desert's nocturnal firmament, a traveller cleared his throat and told his tale.
One at a time, each adventurer regaled the others around the campfire with a story. Inspired by the pages of The Thousand and One Nights, the eight tales are woven together to form a magical tapestry of enchanted kingdoms and desert islands, sorcerers and jinns.
First published in special handmade limited editions, this volume of The Caravanserai Stories brings all eight spellbinding tales together in one remarkable collection.
Building on foundations laid down in scores of other published works, these stories recounted at the desert caravanserai have been hailed as Tahir Shah's finest work.
