Overview

"Seven Bites From A Raisin" is a collection of folk proverbs from the Armenian. First published in English-only in 1980, the book has long been out-of-print. It is now being re-issued by the author/translator in a new bilingual edition. Pithy bouquets from an oriental garden, these 199 gleanings shed a new tinge of delight and the charms and foibles of humanity and offer a view into a culture from older and more traditional times. The wise and foolish, saints and rascals, along with camels, donkeys, eagles, goats, lions and wolves all parade their antics through this bi-lingual collection of Armenian proverbs. With introduction, preface to the new edition, and endnotes.
"These proverbs in Peter Manuelian's masterful hand oblige us to relate to their wisdom, not just from ideas but from our experiences. It is the proverbs' immediacy that catches us here, confronting us in our nakedness by showing us who and what we are: simple, vulnerable mortals on a wobbly journey through life."
-- David Kherdian, poet, novelist, translator and author of the award-winning biography 'The Road from Home'.
