"Ascension on the Wings of a Tale" - Compelling Short Stories Introduce Readers to Arab Literature
By: Strategic Book Publishing and Rights Co, LLC
Be ready to be swept into the heat and passions of the Arabian world through its diverse literature. Each tale's unique rhythm combines to create a collection that allows greater understanding of this part of the world.
Journalist and author Gene Gumbs says of the book, "It is very easy to simplify, stereotype, and misunderstand cultures that we are unfamiliar with. In choosing the pieces for translation, Abdallah Altaiyeb presents a society, family dynamics, and perspectives that, in many ways, mirror our lives in the West. Translating someone else's work is a monumental task. Doing it well is an art form. This is a masterful job of choosing stories that paint vivid pictures that know no borders."
From the first page to the last, this insightful collection of contemporary short works proves just how much people everywhere have in common.
About the Author: Abdallah Altaiyeb is a poet, novelist, short story writer, essayist, and translator in several languages. Born and raised in Medina on the west coast of Saudi Arabia, he studied chemical engineering, earned MBA and DBA degrees, and worked as a manager for Saudi Aramco, the national oil company. His first translated anthology, "On the Weave of the Sun," also presented great Arabic literature to the world and was called an exhilarating treasure chest of short stories, resonating with readers everywhere.
"Whether it be music, film, or literature, the arts have always brought people from different cultures closer together. We are proud to be the publisher of this rich short story collection."
