In over 30 essays, written over 20 years, one of the world's great storytellers meditates on storytelling. Warm, funny, generous, entertaining and, above all, deeply considered, Daemon Voices offers thoughts on a wide variety of topics, including the origin and composition of Philip's own stories, the craft of writing and the storytellers who have meant the most to Philip.
The art of storytelling is everywhere present in the essays themselves, in the instantly engaging tone, the vivid imagery and striking phrases, the resonant anecdotes, the humour and learnedness. Together, they are greater than the sum of their parts: a single, sustained engagement with story and storytelling.
You might have heard Philip reading from Daemon Voices each day over on BBC Radio 4 last week. If you missed this (or just want to listen again!), the omnibus is available here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b09c1y3m
