Donkey Tales of Mullah Nasruddin

Adventures & antics of the famed folk hero’s hairy ass

Collected & retold by Ron J. Suresha

A little grey donkey named Karakacan was the faithful companion of the folk character Mullah Nasruddin and made its appearance in many of his most famous stories.

Known as Nasreddin Hoca in Turkey, where he is revered as a national hero, the eight-centuries old “wise fool” Nasruddin is the subject of thousands of folk tales and bawdy jokes from across the Middle and Far East.

Taken from authentic sources, many stories have been told of the Mullah’s long, abiding relationship with his beloved donkey.

Their enterprises and exploits, for better and worse, are by turns inspirational, sentimental, satirical, silly, and shocking — but always hilarious and entertaining.

Collected into three sections: Nice, Naughty, and Nasty, there is something in this book for everyone to enjoy. Mature readers only.
