Paulo Lemos Horta

Paulo Lemos Horta is the author of Marvellous Thieves: Secret Authors of the Arabian Nights, published by Harvard University Press in 2017, and co-editor of Cosmopolitanisms, published by New York University Press the same year. Most recently, he edited Aladdin: A New Translation (2018), translated by Yasmine Seale. It was praised by Publishers Weekly as an “exhilarating translation [that] will thrill fans of darker, more complex fairy tales and upend readers’ preconceived image of Aladdin.” He writes for the Times Literary Supplement and the Los Review of Books. He is Associate Professor of Literature and Creative Writing at New York University Abu Dhabi.
