:: Apocryphal Tales

Finished Karel Capek's Apocryphal Tales a couple of days ago. Excellent reimaginings of vignettes throughout history -- an account of the miracle of the loaves and fishes from the viewpoint of a not-so-happy baker, a poignant insight into the life of Martha the sister of Lazarus and her unappreciated love for her family, a letter from Alexander the Great to his mentor Aristotle explaining how his obsessive conquest of the world was all based on logic and the demands of national security (timely and a tad alarming!). Love, patriotism, greed, jealousy, affection, fear, all the core human emotions on parade in a collection of witty, lively, thought-provoking stories.

Wish I had more thumbs so I could give it more than two thumbs up :)
