Meredith, George: The Shaving of Shagpat. v1. 30 July 07
One of my FAVORITE novels of oriental stories. Modelled after the Arabian Nights, The Shaving of Shagpat is a magical story that is extremely enjoyable. This is a story that has a magical, oriental texture all its own. I first encountered this as a Ballantine Adult Fantasy novel in the late 1960s, and edited by Lin Carter.
I fell in love with this book. I put this together carefully and with loving attention to detail. (Let me know of any errrors, please.)
Here's a quote:
"It was early in 1856 that The Shaving of Shagpat, a work of singular imagination, humour and romance, made its appearance. Modelled upon the stories of the Arabian Nights, it catches with wonderful ardour the magical atmosphere of Orientalism, and in this genre it remains a unique triumph in modern letters."
I hope you enjoy it.
