For the everyday people of Tibet "Uncle Tompa" mirrors the rough and ready, mean and bawdy, always down-to-earth quality of life itself. A beloved rogue, Uncle combines the street smarts of Br'er Rabbit, the triumphant outrageousness of Coyote and the unconventional wisdom of Mullah Nasruddhin. Conman, prankster, and playboy, his exploits outwit the vain and the greedy and turn the tables on those who take advantage of others. Behind the ribaldry and hard-hitting down-home fun, he's a hero of the "little man" who wishes to get even with the abusive rich, powerful and religiously privileged. Who but Uncle Tompa makes a petty king bark like a dog, convinces a vain and rich old man to plant yak's hair on his bald cranium, and passes as a nun to besport himself sexually in the neighborhood nunnery!
For those whose knowledge of Tibet is limited to monasteries and mantras, here is a fresh glance at Tibetan folklore. Delightful, whimsical and decidedly bawdy. Adult story lovers will not want to miss Tales of Uncle Tompa!
