Maqamat Abi Zayd al-Saruji is a scholarly, Arabic-only edition of the celebrated work by al-Hariri, which is also available in English translation from the Library of Arabic Literature as Impostures. This work consists of fifty stories about the adventures of the itinerant con man and master of persuasion Abu Zayd al-Saruji, as told by the equally itinerant and often clueless narrator al-Harith ibn Hammam. Al-Hariri was a virtuoso writer of the rhymed prose narrative genre known as the maqamah, which would continue as a popular literary form into the twentieth century.
