Excerpts quoted in the podcast:

  1. In order not to let the Aga’s matrimonial misadventure be forgotten, the day after the divorce, the Begum celebrated her liberty by inviting friends to tea party designed just for “telling all”.
  2. “The Aga Khan claims to be descended from Ali, the son-in-law of the Prophet Mohammed, but from the way he menaced and maltreated me, I am inclined to hearken to those historians who trace his origin to the notorious Old Man of the Mountain, Hassan Sabbah, the dreaded founder of the Assassins Order.”
  3. “They did not know that the Aga – madly jealous like most Orientals – hired spies by the score to watch me day and night when he went gadding about the country. These pests peered under the bed, looked behind the curtains, and kept especially close watch on my dancing partner, which greatly exasperated me.”
  4. “As a rule, he would finally admit he was not overfond of resisting temptation, yet he always insisted that I had no right to act as he did, declaring this would bring dishonor on his head.”
  5. No made made love with more success than His Highness, although the Aga’s face and figure were so eminently ludicrous that a Paris wag once described him as a “fat frog with the eyes of a frog, the teeth of a beaver, and the complexion of a smoked ham.” Nobody has topped that yet.
  6. While his followers in the Far East mystically invoke him as the “The Repository of the Universal Soul”, the profane in Europe give him the nickname of “The Universal Lover”.
  7. The Aga lavished wealth on the loveliest women, loading them with precious stones, replenishing their wardrobes, paying their rent, or sharing with them his winnings at the gaming tables.
  8. Games of hazard, as well as business, dissipated much of the Aga’s time and gold. Jane said that although the Koran prohibits gambling, this so-called descendant of the Prophet was a law unto himself – a demigod strutting about the casinos at Cannes and Monte Carlo.
  9. “The Aga was such as reckless gamester,” declared the Begum, “that I am sure he would have staked me, and my jewels at play, like the Mahabharata hero, King Yudhishthir, who gambled away his wife and possessions on a throw of the dice.”
  10. “I wanted to wear white at my wedding,” exclaimed the former candy girl, “but he Aga, who evidently thought more of his fillies than his fiancee, compelled me to put on a dress of green and brown, the colors of his stables.”
  11. “One of the reasons why I filed suit for divorce,” continued Jane-Andree, “was because Aga brought up our eleven-year-old child, Prince Sadri, as if he intended to make him a jockey.”
  12. “My ex-husband bragged of the lions he killed in Kenya, of the hearts he had won, of his extraordinary luck at roulette and baccarat.
  13. “What heroic efforts I made to keep awake whenever he told me about his ancestors, his travels, his treasures, his triumphs, his trotters, and the tidy sums he made by the sale of his bottled bath-water.
  14. “Now I can consume the residue of my days in peace,” she cried. “I shall not be obliged to wear out life with altercations. To tell the truth, I am lucky to be alive, for my paunchy ex-spouse, imbued with Oriental notions and descended from the founder of the Assassins Order, was quite capable of getting rid of me as the late Maharaja of Patiala got rid of his self-willed and superfluous wives.”
  15. While the disenchanted Jane-Andree was exercising her corrosive wit upon her former mate, His Highness was being interviewed by journalists as his villa in St. Moritz. Asked what he thought of the candy girl, the “Possessor of Heavenly Wisdom” assumed the attitude of a tragedy hero, and, blowing like a long-traveled porpoise, replied:

“Man is born to misfortune, and it is but fit that I should have a share. My worshipers in Syria, Iraq, Iran, Turkestan, India, Malaya, Zanzibar, and Madagascar have for years invoked me by the name of “The Shadow of Allah”, but ever since I married that ‘image of frivolity’ I met in a candy store at Chambery, they have called me a fool.

“I put up with her whims and pranks, I was never remiss in my conjugal duties, and I rarely pried into her secrets. But how can a man occupy and amuse a woman forever? Today I am as sick of her as she is weary of me. We came together in the illusion of love and clasped hatred within our joined arms. Of all the serious things in the world, marriage is the absurdest. How much better off would I have been today, and how much happier, if I had bought a doll at the bazaar instead of wedding this frivolously-minded French girl!”
