The Arabian Nights of the Mughal world in its definite English translation – here is the spellbinding story of Amir Hamza, adventurer and uncle of prophet Muhammed, who travels to exotic lands, defeats many enemies and encounters along the way warriors and kings, tricksters and faireies, courtesans and magical creatures.
‘Remarkable… The Iliad and Odyssey of the medieval Persian world: a rollicking, magic-filled heroic saga, full of myth and imagination.’ This is the first time it has been translated into English and it is as close as is now possible to the world of the Mughal campfire – those night gatherings of soldiers, Sufis, musicians and camp followers one sees in Mughal miniatures.’
How wonderful that English speaking readers now have access to one of the great classical narratives of popular Persian and Islamic culture. The universal appeal of this book lies in its colourful, playful and simply beautiful rendition of a world that is both fabulous and greatly entertaining.’
