The Boy Who Ate Too Many Tongues
This is one of the first stories that I came up with for my book about Turkmenistan. It's also one of my favorites, and sadly it's also one of the first that I decided had to be cut. It just didn't fit in with the rest. Where the other stories were realistic and down to earth this one is more like a fable. It seemed out of place.
I still like it though.
