James Stephens - The Crock of Gold

The Crock of Gold by James Stephens
Truly unique, it is a mixture of philosophy, Irish folklore and the battle of the sexes all with charm, humour and good grace.

The Leprecauns of Gort na Cloca have their pot of gold stolen and for revenge kidnap the Philosophers' children Seamus and Brigid which sets into motion a series of events involving Angus Og, the Thin Woman of Inis Magrath, the fairy folk of the Shee, and the wise and profound musings of all involved.

It all rotates around the astonishing story of what happens when Pan shows up in Ireland, what Angus Og does about it, and what becomes of the Daughter of Murrachu who gets caught in between them. A mad-cap quest ensues as fairies, leprechauns and a philosopher being hunted by the police all get involved in the antics of the two gods.

“A really wonderful and unique book”
