The Tale of Tales
- Penguin Audio Classics
- By: Giambattista Basile, Nancy L. Canepa - translator, Nancy L. Canepa - notes, and others
- Narrated by: full cast
- Length: 18 hrs and 7 mins
Funny and scary, romantic and gruesome - and featuring a childless queen who devours the heart of a sea monster cooked by a virgin, and who then gives birth the very next day; a lecherous king aroused by the voice of a woman whom he courts, unaware of her physical grotesqueness; and a king who raises a flea to monstrous size on his own blood, sparking a contest in which an ogre vies with men for the hand of the king's daughter - The Tale of Tales is a fairy-tale treasure that prefigures Game of Thrones and other touchstones of worldwide fantasy literature.
