Journal Entry 1 by wingDolphuswing from Luzern, Luzern Switzerland on Wednesday, April 29, 2015
Without a doubt Rafik Schami is a master of the art of storytelling. Born in Syria, living in Germany and writing in German, he has aimed to collect all the potential of storytelling in a single book. The fascinating thing about it is that he manages bring the Arabic art of storytelling, which at times can appear alien to the western ear, into a form suitable to the western listener/reader, without damaging this high art.

However, I have to emphasize that in the art of storytelling no book can ever be as powerful as the spoken word. Everybody, who has ever listened to Rafik Schami telling his tales, will understand.
