1001, Grote's modern twist on the ancient Tales of the Thousand and One Nights, opens on Alan wandering through a deserted New York City subway tunnel in a hallucinogenic daze only to emerge from the dark to encounter a one-eyed Middle-Eastern merchant in ancient Baghdad. It is a retelling of the classic collection of tales on love, sex, religion, and war.
