Books Info:

The Honey Thief free pdf This enchanting novel of interwoven legends burns with both gentle intelligence and human warmth This extraordinary book, derived from the long oral tradition of storytelling in Afghanistan, presents a mesmerizing portrait of a people who triumph with intelligence and humor over the oppressions of political dictators and an unforgiving landscape. A musician conjures stones to rise in the air and teaches his art to a mute child. Master Poisoner, Ghoroob of Mashad, has so perfected his craft that it is considered an honor to die from his meals. These are stories of magic and wonder in which ordinary people endure astonishing extremes in a world of bloodshed and brotherhood, miracles and catastrophes. With lyrical wit and profound simplicity, "The Honey Thief "reveals an Afghanistan of greater richness and humanity than is conveyed in newspaper headlines- an Afghanistan not of failure and despair, but of resilience and fulfillment.
