Sixteen tales of alternate Irelands, alternate worlds, gathered together in a sophisticated and startlingly diverse collection told at hypnotic pace. They are the stories of a cynical yet mysteriously naive voice, the voice of the outsider who remains incredulous when confronted with the absurdities of life.
The 2nd edition of Lost Notes from the pen of the estimable David Murphy (veteran Irish author of short fiction, novels and poetry) is available for purchase here in print, for the low price of 10 euro total (i.e. including postage & package). It is also available for the even lower prince of 4 euro in downloadable pdf format.
“‘Lost Notes’ is a story that approaches greatness. Attempts at description can only diminish it. There are certain passages in great music that, whenever I hear them, I have only to close my eyes to be released from corporeality. ‘Lost Notes’ had the same effect on me.” – David Marcus
“It’s a rare talent who can show us a glimpse of what Ireland is and what it could become. David Murphy doesn’t believe in glimpses. He shows it all, every subtle distinction, every smell, every shade. You will remember this book.” – Roelof Goudriaan
