Before television and radio, people would gather on porches, on the steps outside their homes, and tell stories.

Their bewitched listeners would sit and listen long into the night as moths flitted around overhead.

Storytelling phenomenon The Moth recaptures this lost each week in cities across America, Britain, Australia and beyond, playing to packed crowds at sold-out live events. Occasional Magic is a selection of 50 of the finest Moth stories from recent shows, from storytellers who found the courage to face their deepest fears.

The stories feature voices familiar and new. Alongside Neil Gaiman, Adam Gopnik, Andrew Solomon, Rosanne Cash, and Cristina Lamb, there are stories from around the world describing moments of strength, passion, courage and humour - and when a little magic happened.

In finest Moth tradition, Occasional Magic encourages us all to be more open, vulnerable and alive.
