Thanks to everyone who came to the Telegraph reading to share in Nasruddin’s funny and foolish legacy, esp: my New London peeps, Mary, Jim, Bob (who shuttered this pic), Ronna, Evan, Robert, Dave, and the hundreds more who helped make it a truly memorable occasion; also pleased to meet other lovely local folklorists; Usha, another Nasruddin devotee, and her daughter. So . . .  thanks once again for coming. I hope you enjoyed hearing these stories as much as I enjoyed sharing them.
