Arabian Tales

Publisher: Quartet Books Place of Publication: United Kingdom Date of Publication: 2011 ISBN: 978-0704372504 Number of Copies: 1 Author: Kishtainy, Khalid

A man who goes to bring a handful of soil from his motherland; a boy who defies authority to eat an orange with his mother; how dogs and cats caused chaos with the Arab/Israeli conflict; the consequences of a perfumed handkerchief discovered in the underpants of a business executive; the cost of old sins. Those who know already the wit and wisdom of Khalid Kishtainy and who have read his syndicated newspaper columns for many years will be delighted by this collection of short stories; some sad, some erotic, but all imbued with sympathy for the dilemmas of humanity. For readers unaware of Kishtainy’s international reputation for skewering the great and the good with his sly, capricious humour, a delightful discovery awaits you.
