Rating : 4.5/5 from 109 voters

This book is partially inspired by a legendary tale of Scheherazade in the One Thousand and One Nights. The main character, who narrates in the first person, experiences a series of disconcerting events, prompting her to question and examine her entire life; but she examine it in a larger context of a place and time in which she lives. A revelation, not in a form of cathartic acquittal of all the past fatuities but as an arduous process during which she thinks she may have found the meaning in a seemingly erratic life, set in motion all her powers, spurred memories of all the distant and recent past roles, and emerged as a discovery that the only role she unknowingly performed all her life was a role of an entertainer. She was ashamed at first since she desired a better calling, but the snapshots of her life kept reassuring her that in order to come to terms with her life, she had to accept her role. In the process of recovery, a tale of Scheherazade, in her words, aided the rescue of her self-respect.
