Moving effortlessly from the oral to the written, from folktale to modern-day fable, and from the earthly to the transcendent, this beautiful, 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 writer, storyteller, educator and human activist.The mystery and wonder of Afghanistan comes to life in these tales of leopards that sing and bees that sneeze, of horseshoe bats in flights that blot out the sun, and of blackbirds that bring golden apples to earth from heaven. Whether the tale is of beekeepers or kings, The Honey Thief conveys in stories of surprising tenderness the stark beauty of the interwoven lore from a land of bloodshed and brotherhood, of miracles and catastrophes.
