Myths of Angus, the Celtic god of dreams, love, and joy, are joined with tenuously related stories of recent times by the Scottish author of the international hit THE NO. 1 LADIES DETECTIVE AGENCY. For instance, McCall Smith tells us how Angus finds the girl he's been dreaming of. She has turned into a swan. So he becomes one, and they fly off together. Segue to bronze statues of swans before a rustic cottage inhabited by newlyweds. After the wife discovers her husband's infidelity, she begins seeing a therapist who coaches her to conjure what he calls "lucid dreams." Narrator Michael Page give a lyrical reading of the mythic sections and a rather gloomy rendering of the modern accounts. Y.R. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 07]
