J.R.R. Tolkien and the Exorcism of the Tape Recorder

J.R.R. Tolkien and the Exorcism of the Tape Recorder

JRR Tolkien

Recently it was announced that a hitherto unknown short story by J.R.R. Tolkien named The Story of Kullervo will be published by HarperCollins, thus placing Tolkien in the company Harper Lee, Truman Capote, and other authors who recently have had allegedly unknown manuscripts discovered and published.

I have no doubt that The Story of Kullervo will be a good read because Tolkien is a good storyteller. But one of my favorite Tolkien stories involves the man himself, namely the story of J.R.R. Tolkien and the Exorcism of the Tape Recorder.

In the words of my friend, the Australian, I shall return.
