A djinn in a bottle and three wishes: what would you desire?

Friday, 4 May 2012 @08:21

"In the Haghia Sophia she had her third encounter with Fate, or with something."
(Antonia Byatt)
Fate crosses my path. I stop and listen.

What would happen if you find a djinn in a bottle? You have three wishes: what would you desire? Antonia Byatt follows our modern heart in "The Djinn in the Nightingale’s Eye": the story of a single woman, "floating redundant", who goes to Istanbul and encounters Fate. Better: encounters a djinn in a bottle.

Yes, I write. Yes, I believe in the magic of words. That’s why you’ll find me here, every Friday: Lisa “globish”!

I believe in the magic of words, and I believe Piazza Unità in Trieste, where I was born, is the most romantic square in the world. (And yes, it’s in Italy, proudly facing the sea). I love roses in every form. And, of course, I do love my blog, expecially now that I can carry it around on my iPhone.
