Fibs, Facts and Farces: Tales from the Arab World
By John Carter

The recent history of the Arab World presents a dismal story of pain, horror, and suffering. The causes are many and the blame game endless. However, the happy experiences of one Englishman throw a quite contrary light on current events, and have been written down as a way of saying thank you to all the Arabians involved for their unrivalled hospitality and friendship, as well as for sharing so much hilarious merriment…

The author has collected stories over the course of many years that high­light not only the essen­tial dotti­ness of his own country’s activ­ities in the area, but also unveil the tremendous humour that the Arabs them­selves possess. In this volume these tales are recorded, many for the first time, and have been added to by extensive research into the relevant liter­ature to provide important back­ground material, refer­ence and explanation.

To under­stand the humour of a race or nation is to under­stand and appre­ciate their culture and char­ac­ter­istics and reach a common ground. Whatever your nation­ality, Fibs, Facts and Farces: Tales from the Arab World will have you holding your sides.
