40 rules of love

Posted on: September 1, 2013

The Forty Rules of Love takes Sufism into blockbuster territory. It interweaves Ella’s quest to find love with Shams’s and Rumi’s quest for beatitude through friendship, as told by a range of characters including Rumi’s wife and sons: one of whom was to assassinate Shams, the other to carry on his father’s work. The narrative is racy, told in first-person fragments, letters, emails and braided through with Shams’s theosophy as told through his 40 rules of love. Elif Shafak expounds a populist rather than a scholarly Sufism, providing a vigourous and easily assimilable introduction to Sufi thought. ——–MUST READ
