An unusual novel which Dr. Dahesh had composed in less than 24 hours spread over 12 days (from the third to the fourteenth of January 1946). The hero, a Dinar (a golden coin), by virtue of its transference from one hand to another, roams several countries for almost a century. It wanders into cities, villages, palaces, cottages, monasteries, nightclubs; it travels in the air and dives to the bottom of the seas; it accompanies good and bad people, kings and commons; it listens to animals and witnesses two national liberation movements in India and Egypt as well as two World Wars and later a third World War! Above all, it records its observations with the genius of a spellbinding storyteller and renders its judgments with the wisdom of a philosopher.
