The Crock of Gold by James Stephens (1882 - 1950).
The Crock of Gold is a comic novel written by Irish author James Stephens (1880 - 1950), a popular poet and quick-witted storyteller whose pantheistic philosophy is revealed in his more or less adult Irish fairy tales. His first novel, The Charwoman's Daughter appeared in 1911. The Crock of Gold, his second book in 1913, again showcases his unique style -- quick wit, cleverness of phrase, irony, astute observation, and rhythmic prose. In it we encounter a Philosopher, his revengeful wife, superstitious villagers, children being lured down leprechaun holes, a young woman seduced by Pan, the god of lust and carefree living; Angus Og the god of youth, love and beauty; also the many useful tips and tricks for dealing with fairies, goblins and Gods. We learn that no good comes of stealing a leprechaun's crock of gold! ~Summary by Michele Fry

I read the summary on Wikipedia. I can dpl this and write a summary at the end.
Love gothic novels? Try Children Of The Abbey. Like surprising mysteries? Try The Amathist Cross. Looking for an easy read? Try Harriet's Choice.

Hi, Lynne. The MW is filled in and I will add the summary shortly. You can delete 19 and 20, whenever. Must we keep the early posts, or can they be deleted and I BC/Solo from scratch? Not sure it matters.

I will advertise for a DPL shortly, after I've added a summary.

I can delete the instructions for logging in. I deleted Stav as DPL. I’m not sure if she still wants to do it.

Lynne, when I search for "The Crock of Gold" from the home page, I get no results. I do get results for "Crock of Gold". Presumably this is because the original BC left out "the" from the title. I've added it back in, but still no results. Can you fix this?

I thought I claimed the dpl-ship of the book and was entered into the mw. Perhaps I was wrong? It was on my to do list.
but Michelle, if I am the dpl, please post in the thread after uploading a chapter. I don't look at the mw unless you post.

Hi, Stav. I think when Lynne and I started the project over, we started from scratch. I'd be happy for you to DPL for me, and I will put the link for each section in a post.

That's strange. I get it both by going to the Home Page and going via the catalog.
