The Adventures of the Faithful Counselor

The Adventures of the Faithful Counselor relates a series of stories about the ancient gods Inanna and Gilgamesh from the point of view of Inanna’s lover and sidekick, Ninshibur, the Faithful Counselor.

As a storyteller, Sheldon performed “Inanna and the God of Wisdom” based on Diane Wolkstein and S.N. Kramer’s translation of the 2nd century BCE cuneiform tablets. After telling the story for a few years, Sheldon began to feel the lack of a point of view that is missing from the traditional story—that of Ninshibur, Inanna’s Faithful Counselor.
