Book Description
Germany has the Brothers Grimm, and now Newfoundland has Paul O’Neill. Paul O’Neill has been collecting favourite stories from around the world since high school. In Fish for Dinner, he has taken tales of long ago that grew out of the world’s oral traditions and set them in communities around Newfoundland and Labrador. The result is a wonderful collection of tales of ghosts, witches, fairies, and magical happenings for the adult reader. Included in Fish For Dinner: Tales of Newfoundland and Labrador By Paul ONeill are stories from:
  • L’Anse aux Meadows — The One Hundredth Wife
  • Corner Brook — How Finbar Beat Old Scratch
  • Harbour Grace — The Wisdom of Solomon
  • Petty Harbour — Skipper and the Red Fox
  • Nain — The Boy Who Never Said A Word
  • Fogo — The Good Merchant
    . . . and many more!
