Join us as we discuss “Leaf By Niggle”, my favorite non-Middle-earth Tolkien story. “Leaf By Niggle” is a mythical story about creativity and love of neighbor with a wonderful conclusion. In the second of a two-part series, we discuss the profound meaning contained in what Tolkien referred to as his “purgatorial” story and the story that reflected his anxities about completing Lord of the Rings.
