The Truth-telling Handkerchief

This story has some striking images; I love this scenario of the rich man who asks a seamstress to embroider his wife’s name into a handkerchief, but when she tries, the stitches, seemingly with a life of their own, trace out the name of his former lover! The camel meeting the little man is also pretty…er, striking! I had a bit of a hard time telling that one, and it was one of several stories over this summer that seemed to want me to go to racier, raunchier places. I guess I was resisting it a bit here, but succumbed in a later story about an Octopus (of which more later!).
