and more Memorable Tales

Selected for the Minha Biblioteca program (São Paulo SME)
Highly recommended reading (FNLIJ)
In this book, stories of the Celtic oral tradition are retold and the narrators lead us to a magical, liberating time, in which the facts receive a renewed look of refined reflection on the world and our humanity, way from the happy endings of the fairy tales. The language used translates the richness and the essence of these foundational narratives, presenting a literature which excels by its form and content of surprising images. There’s no way one cannot identify oneself with the characters in these lovely stories.
