[...] The Sofa by Crébillon fils (1742), the mere mention of which I remember being tantalized by in Aldous Huxley's Crome Yellow when I was in junior high, on account of its wicked premise - tales told to the Sultan, Scheherezade's grandson, by a young courtier whose soul in a previous life was condemned to travel from sofa to sofa as a sofa in search of true love and not to be reincarnated in a human body until a man and a woman sincerely in love with each other had consummated their passion on "his" sofa. --http://www.findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m0268/is_n7_v36/ai_20572925 [Sept 2005]
