Summary Sultana's Dream is a witty, skillful and appealing tale that posits a world in which women have taken over the public sphere and men are confined to the private hidden world of seclusion. ""A gem of a book ... it speaks to us of the complexity of trying to understand women of other cultures and times in their own terms.""--Geraldine Forbes, Committee.
