"Edna O'Brien has found a new voice and a whole new range of characters... I would warmly recommend these stories, told so well that they could become classics" --The New York Times Book Review
"Edna O'Brien writes the most beautiful, aching stories of any writer, anywhere."
In Tales for the Telling you’ll meet giants and leprehauns, heroes and
Edna O’Brien’s collection of twelve quintessentially Irish stories of love
and high deeds, which have been passed from generation to generation are
retold in her distinctive narrative style, brimming with magic and myth,
nonsense and naughtiness.
She accents the comic notes as the giant McConigle threatens to destroy the
giant Finn, a titanic clash averted when Finn’s cunning wife Oonagh fools
the challenger into believing her husband is twice his actual size and
thrice stronger. There is a sweet and silly story about nasty fairies who
force a young lad to help them kidnap a French princess, another about a
brave man who vanquishes all his foes and never falters only to quake with
fear when he falls in love, and many more treasures.
