520    In present-day Massachusetts, Ella, an unhappy housewife 
       on the cusp of 40, begins reading manuscripts for a 
       literary agency, and soon finds herself exchanging 
       personal e-mails with Aziz Zahara, a wandering Sufi 
       photographer and the author of Ella's first assignment, an
       enthralling novel titled Sweet Blasphemy. It fictionalizes
       the true story of the esteemed thirteenth-century Muslim 
       teacher Rumi, who undergoes a profound transformation when
       the wandering dervish Shams of Tabriz, a renegade of 
       strange and unnerving powers, comes to town. The two 
       become inseparable, and as Shams shares the liberating 
       "forty rules of love," Rumi becomes a rebel mystic, the 
       inventor of the "ecstatic dance" of the whirling dervishes,
       and a fervent and cherished poet. Under Aziz's influence, 
       Ella also breaks free of convention and opens herself to 
       cosmic forces. Infused with Sufi mysticism and Rumi's 
       incomparable lyrics, and sweetly human in its embrace of 
       our flaws and failings, Shafak's seductive, shrewd, and 
       affecting novel brilliantly revives the revelations of 
       Shams and Rumi, and daringly illuminates the differences 
       between religion and spirituality, censure and compassion,
       fear and love of life in our own violent world.
