Voices of the desert : a novel by Nélida Piñon ( Book )

Every evening, in an amorous battle devoid of love, Scheherazade succumbs to the Caliph's advances, and every night, with the help of her devoted sister Dinazarda and her loyal slave Jasmine, she entices the Caliph with her storytelling, unfurling accounts from the desert, the tundra, the bazaar, the goldendomed mosques. Scheherazade gives herself entirely to her characters, speaking as both man and woman, capturing the call of the muezzin, the speech of the caravans, the voices of the scattered tribes from the Red Sea to Damascus. The Caliph, unable to sate his curiosity, prolongs her life each day, desperate to hear how her stories will end. As Scheherazade brings him the tales of his people, he begins to question his cruel mandate and his own hardened heart, until, finally, Scheherazade discovers how to live out her story in a way that not even she could have imagined

For the long-awaited reunion, he prepares the same hotel room and with the participation of the prostitutes in the village a recital of works in local theater, where his beloved finally finds the glory she dreamed of for many years.
