Sgeulachdan an da Shaoghail Summary


Sgeulachdan an da Shaoghail: Tales from Two Worlds by Michael Newton

"Tales from Two Worlds" is written as a series of letters from an unnamed source to his foster-brother Roibeart. Each letter recounts an interview with increasingly elderly neighbors who have had memorable encounters with denizens of the Otherworld. These narratives, based on Scottish tales of the supernatural, contain something inexorably compelling about the symbolic Other that allows us to express what is otherwise inexpressible about ourselves and the human condition.
