Swords, sex, and. . . not rock-and-roll, but rather fantasy.  if you have only read Sinbad the Sailor, Alibaba and the 40 Thieves, The Fisherman and the Jinni, you ain’t read nothing yet.  Most of the 1001 Arabian Nights collected by Richard Burton (the translator, NOT the actor) shocked the Victorian public with its depictions of mysterious, seductive and / cheating women.  But tales of travel, adventure, and fantastic wealth abound, too.  Whether appropriate for children or adults, The Book Chamber chose. This addition, newly translated by Yasmine Seale and annotated by Paulo Lemos Horta with illustrations suggestive of jewel-like Islamic, medieval painting, but refreshed.
