Bryan reads his poems from Sing to the Sun and tells his stories, "Ananse the Spider in Search of a Fool," "The Cat's Purr," "Turtle Knows Your Name" and "The Story of Lightning and Thunder." The stories work better than the poetry, but the program really demonstrates a storyteller who is better in person than on audio-cassette. In person, Bryan is electrifying, using his body and his face to create a visually exhilarating performance; on tape, the inflections and variations in pitch and timing seem peculiar and difficult to grasp.
