Flor McCarthy’s books on liturgy and homiletics are greatly enlivened by his creative use of apposite stories. Now he is offering a book built around what happens when a storyteller visits a small community. The 33 stories which the visiting storyteller shares with the people he visits, prompt a range of responses and insights among the listeners.

In The Storyteller Flor McCarthy is building on the observation of Danish writer Karen Blixen that a storyteller has the capacity to create for people, hard-working in real life, another sort of reality which in some way or another can satisfy them.

‘Many of the great storytellers of the world grew up in the sight of great and gifting mountains. Flor McCarthy grew up within earshot of the MacGillycuddy Reeks in Kerry. He listened, he learned, and on his departure to wander, he was gifted with the supreme art of storytelling by the sage of Mangerton Mountain.’
