Extraordinary Adventures of Mullah Nasruddin Publisher's summary

Extraordinary Adventures of Mullah Nasruddin: Naughty, Unexpurgated Tales of the Beloved Wise Fool from the Middle and Far East, revised edition, collected and retold by Ron J. Suresha. finalist of Lambda Literary Awards and honorable mention at Rainbow Book Awards.

This thoroughly revised edition of the award-winning folklore collection detailing the exploits of the beloved 800-year-old Turkish “wise fool”, Mullah Nasruddin (Nasreddin Hoca), presents 257 authentic, hilarious, and outrageous folk tales - dozens appearing in English for the first time.

Author Suresha has done extensive research to locate, translate, and retell these centuries-old “naughty Nasruddin” stories from around the globe. Some are relatively simple, straightforward “traditional” anecdotes and jokes that depict the Mullah, as he daily interacts with his family, neighbors, donkey, community, and strangers during his myriad journeys in the ancient hills and rural villages of the Levant. 

Many bawdy, ribald tales, previously suppressed for moralistic reasons, explore taboo themes inappropriate for children. Mature listeners will be amused and amazed by this unadulterated account of the truly Extraordinary Adventures of Mullah Nasruddin.
