Kalila and Dimna: Fables of Friendship and Betrayal
“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.
