Item description for A Jamaican Storyteller's Tale by Lorrimer Burford...
A Jamaican Storyteller's Tale A Novel By Lorrimer Burford Underpinned by common Jamaican themes, A Jamaican Storyteller's Tale tells the story of a young man intent on saving an aspect of his heritage that is dying- the storytelling. He is heavily influenced by his father's skill at relating these stories.When his family migrates, he comes face to face with the possibility of losing this part of his heritage-forever. By merging these tales with the story of this young man, Burford skilfully creates a supernatural synthesis which captures and tantalizes the reader. ______________________ Having read Lorrimer Burford's "A Jamaican Storyteller's Tale", I feel proud to be a country bumpkin. I am even more proud because the settings of the tales are all from the parish of my birth. The duppy stories are intricately, yet easily woven and are guaranteed to give even the experienced reader goosebumps. Thank you for causing me to relive my rich cultural heritage. I wish that all who read this magnificent work will want to know more about Jamaican folklore and will tell their own stories to keep our oral traditions alive. OLIVER SAMUELS, Actor, Performer
