Edward Zellem is a US Navy Captain and known for his work inside Afghanistan's Presidential Palace and for authoring two bilingual collections of Afghan proverbs, "Zarbul Masalha: 151 Afghan Dari Proverbs" and "Afghan Proverbs Illustrated.
He wrote the books to show how Afghan proverbs demonstrate our common humanity and the humanity of Afghans, and to share the proverbs lyricism, richness and deep meanings with the rest of the world.
What started as a personal interest developed into a real passion with his books translated in 8 different languages and for sale in 35 different countries across the world. All the income of the books will go to education in Afghanistan. In this interview we talk about Proverbs, their meaning and importance.
