    The Courtesan's Keeper

    By: Kshemendra

    Date Released

    Out of Print

    This feast of smiles was put together giving the secret strategies and all the tricks of courtesans.

    One of Kshemendra's finest satires, The Courtesan's Keeper is a delightful and rambunctious rendition of the life and times of the courtesan Kankali as she teaches the ways of the world to her ward Kalavati. From the attractive courtesan and her shrewd keeper, to the experienced barber and the avaricious trader, the book brings to life the vibrant society of Kashmir Valley a thousand years ago through a host of characters, each drawn in vivid detail. With its terse narrative, directness and economy of style and fast-paced action, the book is fully suited for the twenty-first-century reader.

    Translated from the Sanskrit by A.N.D. Haksar
