The legendary Queen Scheherazade told her seductive tales for a thousand and one nights. The characters in Arnold Zable's haunting book emerged from the chaos of World War II to tell their own stories of profound love and loss in the cafe by the sea. A cafe whose name will itself reveal the moving story of how its proprietors, Avram and Masha, met and fell in love.At once fable and history, Cafi Scheherazade takes the reader on a journey which ranges from Kobe to Paris, from Vilna to Melbourne. It remains faithful to the experiences of Jewish survivors, whose lives reflect the courage of refugees everywhere, and confirms Arnold Zable's status as a master storyteller.
