Within this book you’ll find stories and recitations told by the incomparable performer Harry Ingram. There are whimsical yarns of friendly moose and grouchy uncles, mixed with heartwarming tales about family and friends. You’ll also find yourself laughing out loud at some outlandish dialogue! How about a group of elderly ladies who create a bartering system that almost takes down the economy? Or perhaps Christmas nearly being ruined due to a labour dispute at the North Pole? Then comes a heartfelt account of a father and teenaged son, armed with a bucksaw and axe, embarking on a woodcutting expedition. From tear-jerking dramas to those that will tickle your funny bone, you’ll find them all in here.

Altogether the publication is a nimble, lively update on a Newfoundland and Labrador oral tradition.-- Joan Sullivan - The Telegram --
Don't Be Talkin' ~ Recitations and Other Foolishness From Newfoundland and Labrador is a fantastic read!! This is an all ages show contained within the covers of 180 pages; an open ticket that will leave you busting a gut and coming back for more time and time again-- Stephanie Collins - Fireside Collections --
Harry Ingram’s Don’t Be Talkin’ [Flanker Press] is loaded to the gunnels with narrative poems designed for reciting. . . . I’ll chuckle when Jack’s burial site is revealed. I bet a loonie you will also. . . . From his spot on the stage, or right here in the book, Ingram will tickle funny bones when he tells of a labour dispute at the North Pole. . . . There will be guffaws during the tale—a tall one, for certain—of Sir Francis Bacon, the three-legged pig. . . . His poems—and a smattering of stories—are homespun yarns meant to be delivered in a gem-dandy old style once commonplace here on The Rock. . . . Give it to ’er, Harry, me ol’ son. -- Harold Walters - Book Remarks --
DON’T BE TALKIN’ was laugh-out-loud funny and a thoroughly enjoyable read that highlighted life in NL and what it means to be a Newfoundlander.
