Résumé

In 'Ayoun Essid', an isolated Tunisian village, where locals communicate mainly through proverbs lived Sabra, an ambitious and idealist girl. After a divorce, she flees her village and the malicious gossip to live with a lion with mysteriously humane eyes.
Together, they found the utmost happiness and enjoyment; a semi-human, semi- animal life. Sabra tried to satisfy Sultan's inner longing to be a Man!
But she was also satisfying her own old desire for The Perfect Happiness. Was she wise to do so? Didn't she escape 'The World of Men?'
An oral tale adapted to written English, keeping the magical spirit of the original. The story is built around a core Tunisian proverb: 'Malicious words dwell in the heart...', infused with other proverbs: each proverb playing a crucial role in the plot.
