He’s Chris: bored, lonely, trapped in a loveless, sexless marriage. In his forties, he’s a stranger inside the youth culture of London in the late 1970s, a stranger to himself on the night he invites a hooker into his car. She’s Roza: Yugoslavian, recently moved to London, the daughter of one of Tito’s partisans. She’s in her twenties but has already lived a life filled with danger, misadventure, romance, and tragedy. And although she’s not a hooker, when she’s propositioned by Chris, she gets into his car anyway. Over the next months Roza tells Chris the stories of her past. She’s a fast-talking, wily Scheherazade, saving her own life by telling it to Chris. And he takes in her tales as if they were oxygen in an otherwise airless world. But is Roza telling the truth? Does Chris hear the stories through the filter of his own need? Does it even matter?

    " Scherezhade retold in a wonderful way- some favorite quotes " I thought by runnlng away I could leave myself behind" p163 " I once heard a joke about Irish Alzeheimers disease where you forget everything but a grudge "p 65 " But now I know that everyone is escaping from themselves" p191 and it does live up to the reviews. "

    " Well well... Can't believe it took me so long to read this book. It's not even thick. Maybe I'm just too lazy now that I'm on summer break. But this book really didn't excite me or inspire me, I really didn't look forward to reading it even when I took it from the library. Still, Roza is a wicked, provoking girl. I kinda liked her. "

    " Haven't quite decided yet on the review. The story runs smoothly, it is well written, the ending is sad... So I suppose what more could you wish for. "
