The Honey Thief

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


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.

From Publishers Weekly

04 March 2013 – Mazari and Hillman s second collaboration (after The Rugmaker of Mazar-eSharif) is an homage to the richly folkloric Afghani culture. The collection of linked stories focuses on customs and legends spanning centuries of the Hazara people. In Afghanistan, memories are not made of air and light and colour; memories are made of iron and stone. A poor young man, in The Life of Abdul Khaliq, is rumored to have slain a king. Karim Zand, of The Music School, is a mad inhabitant new to the area. When his neighbors discover the otherworldly music he plays on his rubab (a lute-like instrument originally from Central Asia), they gather around his house. He angrily demands to be left alone, but a mute teenager feels a connection to the music and determines to learn the difficult instrument, despite the obstacles. The Cookbook of the Master Poisoner Ghoroob-e-astab of Mashad is about a wily poisoner whose masterful concoctions are almost an honor to die from. At the urging of the prince s bodyguards, he agrees to share recipes that might shield royalty. This entertaining tapestry of myths from Mazari and Hillman will shed light on the Hazara people and their backgrounds. Recipes.
