"Racy, funny, vigorous, contemporary-I defy anyone not to finish it in one sitting."-Doris Lessing

The tales of Kalila and Dimna originated almost two thousand years ago. These charming and humorous stories about animals have found their way in one form or another into the folklore of every major culture and tradition.

What links the fables is the core message about managing power, wise leadership, and the value of true friendship.

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.

From the Author:

I am delighted by this exceptional new 2008 edition by Saqi Books! It displays a wonderful quality of workmanship and great care in production.

For this publisher, I have revised and updated the contents of all earlier editions. It includes, for example, important new material at the back by Dr Christine van Ruymbeke, Soudavar Lecturer in Persian at the Faculty of Oriental Studies, Cambridge University, and also an Abbreviated Pedigree of the book's ancient antecedents.

Some people think the history of 'Kalila and Dimna' is almost as interesting as reading the book itself. You can find out more about that aspect, should it interest you, by searching the title on Wikipedia.
