In After Aesop: Improvisations on Aesop's Fables, Steven Carter adds parody to his wide-ranging repertoire of literary genres. Aesop, perhaps the world's best-known author, produced hundreds of fables that have been re-told countless times, but rarely parodied on a one-to-one basis. By turns hilarious, poignant, and profound, the more than 200 entries in After Aesop are certain to instruct and entertain a diverse modern audience.
