 سمعت مرة من الأديب السوري الراحل عبدالسلام العجيلي، في منتصف تسعينيات القرن الماضي، أن أحد كتبه المطبوع منه ألف نسخة في ستينيات القرن الماضي مازال متداولاً في السوق بطبعته الأولى. وكان العجيلي يتحدث بسخرية مُرَّة أن الألف نسخة لم تنفد حتى ذلك التاريخ! مصدر سخرية العجيلي ليس الشكوى من تراجع حال القراءة في ...  Read More »

للكرسي أربع أرجلٍ إلّا أنّها لم تفكّر ببنتِ خطوةٍ

الكنغرُ جابي الضّرائب في الغابة يملكُ جراباً يغلّ فيه المكوس لذا تراه يقفز بحماسٍ كعريس يوم الزّفاف يقف على ساقيه كسنجاب أو يجلس على ذيله الكبير كالإنسان مجادلاً ومشوّحاً بيديه عندما تنقصه حيلة الكلام. الكنغرُ جابي الضرائب في عالم الحيوان ولولا سوء الحظّ لاتخذه المسيح تلميذاً كما فعل مع متى العشّار. *** ...  Read More »
