From the authors of the bestseller The Rugmaker of Mazar-e-Sharif comes their latest book, The Honey Thief. A superb collection of spellbinding tales from Afghanistan that portray a vivid landscape of hardship and brotherhood, catastrophes and miracles. These tales of peasants, poisoners and kings leap into life to reveal the rich storytelling traditions of Afghanistan.
‘Moving effortlessly from the oral to the written, from folktale to modern-day fable, and from the earthly to transcendent, this beatiful, life-affirming book probes the heart and soul of a remarkable culture, while paying homage to the universal power of story.’
– Arnold Zable, award winning Australian writer, storyteller, educator and human rights advocate.
