About the author

  • Captain Edward Zellem is the award-winning author of two bilingual books of Afghan Proverbs. Now published in eleven languages. 
  • He is a trained Dari speaker and U.S. Navy Captain who worked every day for a year and a half with Afghans in Afghanistan.  This included a year working inside Afghanistan's Presidential Palace. 
  • While in Afghanistan, Captain Zellem became fascinated with the way Afghans use Proverbs in their daily conversations. He began collecting and translating them, and used them every day in his professional and personal life.
  • After students at a local Kabul high school offered to create illustrations, he published his collection to share with the world.
