From his seat by the fireside, Eddie Lenihan speaks to listeners as if he were a friend. An Irish storyteller and folklorist, Lenihan tells traditional stories he has collected from previous generations about the Irish fairies, known as the Good People. Lenihan asserts that the traditional stories tell Irish history and hold cultural values, beliefs, and customs. "The strange thing about Ireland, surely, is that there's hardly a part of it that doesn't have a story attached to it," he remarks. Lenihan imbues each story with a subtle excitement that gives way to power and energy to create characters and scenes as vividly as if he were a visual artist. R.M.
