Description

Written in the tradition of James Michener (Hawaii, Texas), THE STORYTELLER: AN EPIC NOVEL OF IRELAND carries us through seven millennia in a tale teeming with adventure and heroism, love and loyalty, cruelty and betrayal. From the poetic depiction of the geological process that created the island, the novel takes us all the way up to the present day. A travelling storyteller arrives at a house on a November evening, and he begins to tell the story of Ireland to the household and its neighbours. One of his listeners is a nine-year-old boy and through him the link is forged between the modern country of the boy's life and the ancient Ireland of the stories. We follow Irish men and women into exile, and learn how they translated their Irishness into power in their adopted lands, we hear about the funding of the IRA, the domination by England and the ultimate dismantling of British power in Ireland. Through the telling of these true incidents, Frank Delaney constructs the history of an eternally fascinating island.
