Quick review

Here’s a review of Syrian Folktales by Muna Imady, a pleasant little book I received as part of the Library Thing Early Reviewers program.


Imady has successfully accomplished what we all say we should do: get a hold of the story-tellers and write this stuff down. Riddles, songs, and recipes from the various governorates of Syria flesh out the folklore collection, making this volume more of an introduction to a culture than simply a book of stories. The tales themselves are presented in a sparse form, perfect for the scholar.
