On behalf of the Atraf Publications, Literary Sapiens Agency has purchased the Persian translation and publication rights of the book Wondrous Journeys in Strange Lands from the Tamer Institute for Community Education in Palestine. The book will soon be available in Persian.
The winner of the Etisalat Award takes the readers to the adventurous tales of a young, brave woman.
Hundreds of years ago, Qamar and her twin sister were born in a tent at the foot of a mountain in Palestine. When their parents die, Qamar starts traveling around the world. She crosses deserts and seas: from Jerusalem and Gaza; to Egypt, Tangier, Andalusia, and Genoa; Abyssinia, India, the Maldives, and Yemen. Kidnapped by bandits, sold as a slave to the House of a mad King, and disguising as a man: Qamar searches irrepressibly for life, in endless stories within stories.
Do you think she stops the adventure when she gets hurt?
Congratulations to the author of this book, Sonia Nimr, and both parties to the contract.
