Retold by Amina Shah from the Makamat of Al-Hariri of Basra.   Since the time of the First Crusade, the picaresque adventures of the rascal Abu Zayd of Saruj have been read, admired, imitated and praised from Spain to the Hindu Kush. It is the inner thread of this amazing book that makes it a world classic: the tales and events mirror the antics of the human mind in its way through life. The last chapter where the "rascal," after all his experiences, settles down to a devout Sufi life, gives the clue to this fascinating textbook of traditional psychology.
