Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is a beautiful book full of mirth and human interest and unsentimental wisdom."
(Boston Globe)

"A salutary exercise of intellect and spirit for both kings and commoners." (Ursula Le Guin)

"Contemporary, racy, vigorous, full of zest. It is also very funny. I defy anyone to sit down with it and not finish it at a sitting." (Doris Lessing )

"This book is not merely for entertainment - the guidance and honesty weaved into the tales makes this book shine. It is perfect for both younger and adult readers and is highly recommended by this writer. A must-have for any library!"
(The Chicago Firefly, Dec. 2000)

"Wise and vigorous, sly and funny tales . . . They are contemporary; they are eternal . . . No higher praise is necessary."
(Carlos Fuentes)

From the Publisher

In his retelling of 'Kalila and Dimna', Ramsay Wood deftly knits several oral storytelling traditions into a captivating literary style. This version from all major ancient texts is the first new compendium in English since 1570.
