Apricots Tomorrow

Part of the popular Proverb Series, Apricots Tomorrow is a selection of sayings from the Gulf region and joins its sister titles, The Son of a Duck is a Floater and Unload your own Donkey.

These collections of popular wisdom, wittily illustrated by the cartoonist Kathryn Lamb, are books to browse through, smile at and learn from.

Each book contains over 100 proverbs from all over the Arab world. Primrose Arnander and Ashkhain Skipwith are both formerly resident in the Middle East.

‘To understand a people, acquaint yourself with their proverbs’ runs an Arab adage, and here are the books that do just that.

The popular Apricots Tomorrow, a selection of sayings from the Gulf region, was the first in the series and is now joined by its sister titles The Son of a Duck is a Floater and Unload your own Donkey, which draws on sayings from the Maghreb and Levant.

Pairing age-old Arabic sayings with English equivalents, the proverbs highlight the uncanny similarity of inherited wisdom in the East and West.
