About this product
- DescriptionSalim the coachman tells enchanting tales, but suddenly he is struck dumb. Just as Scheherazade told tales to save her life, Salim's friends must spin yarns to save his speech. Set in Damascus in 1959, the vel alternates the real lives of our storytellers with stories from the distant past. These are neither fables r fairy tales with everlasting, happy endings, and they often require readers to suspend their disbelief. Each chapter is preceded by a one-line hint of what is to come, such as 'How one person's true story was t believed, whereas his most blatant lie was.'
