"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.

Ramsay Wood was born in Texas and has lived in Europe, America, and the Far East. He is a founding member of the College of Storytellers.
