Ten and One Nights
Published by Diogenes as Zehnundeine Nacht
Original Title: Zehnundeine Nacht
At the dingy Palace Hotel, a shady businessman visits an aging prostitute night after night, coming to hear her tell stories – it seems she has a flair for the inscrutable, not merely in life but in the fabricated world of her invention. For eleven nights, this modern Scheherazade concocts the wildest fairy tales and parables in order to satisfy her final customer, who likes to be called King.
»Enjoyable reading for an entertaining night.«
