Rate this:
American housewife Ella Rubinstein is forty years old and unhappily married when she takes a job as a reader for a literary agent. Her first assignment is to read and report on a work of fiction called "Sweet blasphemy," written by a man named Aziz Zahara. Zahara's novel, which is told in many different voices, tells of the wandering dervish Shams of Tabriz, his search for Rumi, and his role in transforming the successful but unhappy cleric into a committed mystic, passionate poet, and advocate of love. Becoming increasingly mesmerized by this tale, and growing more distant from her husband, Ella begins to question her protected, insular life and to reach out to Aziz, who lives in Amsterdam. As Ella reads on, she realizes that Rumi's story mirrors her own and that Aziz--like Shams--has come to free her and transform her.
