Great telling of Cornish stories
on 9 September 2013
Having heard Mike O'Connor speak and play I was sure this would be good, and it doesn't disappoint. He bases the book on an actual historical character, Anthony James, who travelled round Cornwall with his son in the early 19th century, playing and telling traditional stores. We follow Anthony and Jamie as they journey round the county one summer, and with Jamie we learn the legends attached to each of the places they visit. So much more readable than just a list of stories, and full of resonances for anyone who lives in Cornwall or who visits on holiday - or just anyone who loves a good tale, well told!
