Two Years, Eight Months and Twenty-eight Nights
A NovelBook - 2015
From Salman Rushdie, one of the great writers of our time, comes a spellbinding novel that blends history and folklore with tremendous philosophical depth. Once upon a time, in a world just like ours, there came "the time of the strangenesses." Reason receded and the loudest, most illiberal voices reigned. A simple gardener began to levitate, and a powerful djinn - also known as the Princess of Fairyland - raised an army composed entirely of her semi-magical great-great-great-grandchildren. And a battle for the kingdom of Fairyland was waged throughout our world for 1,001 nights.
