A book of Gypsy folk tales has recently been published by the European Folklore Institute and L'Harmattan Kiadó. Title: A három muzsikus cigány (the three gypsy musicians). A selection of tales collected from Babos István, gypsy from the village of Babocsa in Somogy County, Hungary. Collected by Szuhay Péter. Publication edited by Fazekas Zsuzsa, 2003, Budapest. These tales were not children's tales, they are erotic folk tales told by adults to adults while in the military service or while doing communal work. They are printed here in Hungarian, in their uncensored form, striving to preserve the dialect. Report by Dala Sára.
