Extraordinary Adventures of Mullah Nasruddin
Naughty, unexpurgated stories of the beloved wise fool from the Middle and Far East
collected & retold by Ron J. Suresha
published by Lethe Press
This much-anticipated sequel to the award-winning folklore collection detailing the exploits of the beloved 800-year-old Turkish “wise fool,” Mullah Nasruddin (Nasreddin Hoca), presents well over 250 hilarious, authentic folk tales, dozens appearing in English for the first time.
Author Suresha has done extensive research to unearth and retell these centuries-old “naughty Nasruddin” stories from around the globe. These ribald tales depict the Mullah as he daily interacts with his family, donkey, community, and strangers during his journeys. Many tales, previously suppressed for moralistic reasons, explore taboo themes. Mature readers will be amused and amazed by this unadulterated account of the truly Extraordinary Adventures of Mullah Nasruddin.
