I live in Dublin, Ireland. Sometimes. Most times I live in my head, quite unaware of my surroundings – if you know what I mean… If you succeed in tracking Sean Walsh, please let me know, ok? I've been searching for him for years…

Intro to Notes…

Published on Thursday 26th October 2017 by Sean Walsh

Ireland of the late 70’s, early 80’s, recalled…

 

A man looks back, re-lives his boyhood years – not so much A Voyage Round my Father as Travels with my Dad… memories elicited by a psychiatrist to whom he submits as part of an attempt to extricate himself from the debris of a sundered marriage…

 

And in the frame, Jenny, the daughter he tracks from childhood through adolescence to early womanhood…

 

‘Spiced throughout with a wry sense of humour…

Not easy to define – literary fiction, a kind of memoir, more than somewhat autobiographical…

Quite marvelous. Maybe that’s what great lit does for us – allows us to weep the tears we have been holding captive…”

– Sean O Conaill.

So hit by the rawness and swept away by the fluidity… A deep, soft poignancy that’s really touching…”

– Sean Wiegand.

A cascade of words which seems to tumble out one on top of the other before disappearing in any number of poetic eddies. Brings to mind reading Francoise Sagan.” – James Hynes.

“He can put things into words that I can only feel – so much of this book is flaying me, I’m hurting, but it’s a hurt that I can deal with and I value.”

– Jo O Sullivan.
