The Italian winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature delivers two sparkling, imaginative works never previously published. "The Peasants' Bible" is a collection of five stories drawn from Italian folklore but filtered through Fo's delightfully singular lens--for example, an Adam and Eve who are passionately entwined like peas in a pod; a race between two classes of men struggling for power that resembles the legend of the Hare and the Tortoise--to form a Bible of the common man. "The Story of the Tiger" is the story of a Fourth Army soldier injured fighting Chiang Kai-shek's army, saved from starvation by being suckled by an enormous tiger, who then comes back to defeat Kai-shek by using model tigers in combat.
