The Pirate of Tunis
by S.J. Revich
The Pirate of Tunis, another tale told by the old Moroccan Jewish story-teller to the children of Kalim, begins in 1492, the fateful year in Jewish history when all Jews were expelled from Christian Spain. A young brother and sister enter a world of piracy and brigandage, a world where those who are good are often difficult to distinguish from those who are evil, a world where Coron, the Jewish pirate of Tunis, exacts his revenge upon the nation that destroyed his family and his innocence.
