1001 Arabian Nights
In 1995 Joan recorded this audio book of 1001 Arabian Nights with William Vanderpuye.
1001 Arabian Nights are exotic tales of romance and adventure in ancient Araby, told by the lovely Queen Shahrazad, one tale a night, to delay her execution at the hands of the king, her husband.
In her stories - of gigantic birds and sea monsters, of maidens guarded by evil djinns and Caliphs disguised as fisherman, Shahrazad suffers no maidenly modesty in describing with the indulgent eye of the East the acts of love in all their splendour and degradation.
Released by Spartan Audiobooks, this is a double cassette running time approximately 2 hrs 30 mins.
