Product Description

There is a certain pleasure in a story well told. It captures you, whisks you away, and places you into the shoes of someone whose life feels both familiar and alien. Stories are how we participate in humanity. And so Rob Parsons, who has made it his business to tell stories that entertain and illuminate, does exactly what he does best. Tell stories.

A collection of his very best tales and encounters, Let Me Tell You A Story offer heartwarming examples of life in all its variety.

Like sitting around a fire pit, where stories were told for millennia as well as at the very beginning of Rob’s book, these tales carry a warmth and a sense of community. They are stories of love, of common (and in-common) dreams and fears. Parenthood, postmen, property and the past, as well as dozens of other stories, all shed light on the foibles and joys of life.

Told with the skill, heart and passion of a master storyteller at work, Let Me Tell You A Story is a shining example of compassionate insight, and a humorous look at the lessons we can learn from life as it is lived.

So settle down in a comfy chair, grab a warm drink, and let Rob Parsons tell you a story. Or Two. Or three.

Maybe even four.

Or more...
