    Elif Shafak is an award-winning author whose previous books include The Bastard of Istanbul and The Saint of Incipient Insanities. She divides her time between London and Istanbul.
    A mesmerizing tale of love-from the author of The Bastard of Istanbul

    Elif Shafak, the most widely read female writer in Turkey, has earned a growing fan base all over the world with her bestsellingThe Bastard of Istanbul. In The Forty Rules of Love, her lyrical, imaginative new novel about the famous Sufi mystic Rumi, Shafak effortlessly blends East and West, past and present, to create a dramatic, compelling, and exuberant tale about how love works in the world. Shafak unfolds two parallel narratives-one set in the thirteenth century, when Rumi encountered his spiritual mentor, the wandering dervish known as Shams of Tabriz, and one contemporary, as an unhappy American housewife, inspired by Rumi's message of love, finds the courage to transform her life.
