The impudent adventures of Khoja Nasreddin are set in ancient Bukhara -- once a great center of Islamic power. Dreaded and hated by the Emir, the tax-collector and the usurer who never escapes his pranks, nor apprehends his person, his is adored by humble folk -- the people from the bazaars, the tea-shops and they protect him at all costs. In the guise of a beggar or an astrologer he rescues his beloved Guljan from the Emir's harem, tricks the usurer to take his place and behaves in general like a Soviet Robin Hood. Here's an evening of fun with a democratic message for readers of satire, humor or folk talks. Reminiscent of Seven Gothic Tales.
