Publisher's Summary

Once, when young Nasruddin was acting up in class by distracting his classmates with endless antics, jests, and stories, his irate teacher uttered a curse: ''Whatever you do or say, wherever you go or stay, whether it's night or day - people will only laugh at you.'' Now, eight centuries later, people everywhere are still laughing at the immortal Mullah Nasruddin, one of the world's most beloved folk characters.

This entertaining and insightful retelling of the Nasruddin corpus by noted anthologist and lifelong Nasruddin devotee Ron J. Suresha brings the beloved Persian folk hero into the 21st Century. With more than 343 stories (seven parts each with seven sections of at least seven stories), this collection easily becomes the definitive English anthology of Mullah Nasruddin wit and wisdom. Storytellers, folklorists, Sufis, comedians, spiritual seekers, and everyone who loves to laugh will be enriched and enlightened by the Mullah's uncommon sense of humor.
