Item description for Voces Del Desierto/Voices of the Desert (Spanish Edition) by Nelida Pinon & Mario Merlino...

Every night a beautiful woman is chosen to lay with the caliph of Baghdad only to be executed at sunrise. A thousand years ago, Scherezade saved her life by her gift of storytelling in The Arabian Nights, now; this book reinvents the fascination with this classic tale. It recreates her days in the palace and the feelings and emotions of a woman dedicated to an art where to lose track of a story means losing her life. Through the accounts of the narrator, we become participants of her story, struggles and the story of the palace. Description in Spanish: El Califa de Bagdad tiene por costumbre llamar a las ms bellas jvenes del reino para yacer con l una noche y al alba ejecutarlas. Esta vez le ha tocado a Scherezade, la bella e inquieta hija del Visir. A pesar del miedo que invade a toda la familia, Scherezade no se arredra y, a propuesta de su hermana Dinazarda, decide utilizar su facultad ms destacada: la de narradora de cuentos. As pues, se traslada al palacio con Dinazarda y la esclava Jasmine para hacer frente a la lujuria y crueldad del Califa. Scherezade comienza su primera historia y como tiene gran talento como contadora, el Califa decide posponer su ejecucin una y otra noche, tras gozar de ella, subyugado por la belleza e ingenio de los relatos. A partir de ah, Scherezade queda prisionera en las estancias del palacio junto con sus acompaantes mientras las noches se suceden y el narrador nos presenta todo lo que ocurre all.
