    Hardcover. Signed by the Author, strictly while stocks last...

    He will spend three days alone on his island. That is all that he asks . . . John is so many miles from love now and home. This is the story of his strangest trip.

    John owns a tiny island off the west coast of Ireland. Maybe it is there that he can at last outrun the shadows of his past. 

    The tale of a wild journey into the world and a wild journey within, Beatlebone is a mystery box of a novel. It's a portrait of an artist at a time of creative strife. It is most of all a sad and beautiful comedy from one of the most gifted stylists now at work. Logo
