A Jamaican Storyteller's Tale. A Novel by Lorrimer Burford
Published by LMH Publishing Ltd, 2005
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 art of storytelling. He is heavily influenced by his father's skill of 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 skilfullly creates a supernatural synthesis which captures and tantalizes the reader.
