Beschreibung des Verlags

A wondrous anthology of original narratives and fictional dialogues dating from January 2011 to February 2013 by a lyrical philosopher of Ireland. This contemporary collectable boldly yet sensitively addresses several universal themes such as love, freedom, morality, human trafficking, children and spousal abuse, religion, politics, fanaticism, prophecy, cosmology, art, fashion, music, and the esoteric.
There are conversations with for instance: Her Royal Highness Crown Princess Mary of Denmark, Edgar Cayce, Matthias Stormberger, Michel de Nostredame, Her Royal Highness Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway, Adolf Hitler, The Holy Qur’an, Greta Garbo, The Papal Altar and Baldacchino, Vincent van Gogh, Wolfgangus Mozart, Empress Catherine the Great of Russia, HRH Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal bin Abdul Aziz al-Saud, Chancellor Angela Merkel, Ludwig van Beethoven, Bernadette Soubirous, Sir Patrick Stewart, a Tarot card, a certain racehorse, Anne Sinclair, Andre Rieu, Pontius Pilatus, Anne Boleyn, His Holiness Dala Lama, Ronnie O’Sullivan, a Mauthausen concentration camp inmate, St. Martin de Porres of Lima, Grand Prince Yuri Dolgoruky, Don Quixote de la Mancha, a Trilobite fossil, James Joyce, Monsignor Georg Ganswein, a Bolivian stone artefact, Krak de Chevaliers, Rock of Cashel, Temple Mount Dome of the Rock, Jehanne d’Arc, the isle of Ireland/Éire, Antonio Canova’s Psyche Revived by Cupid’s Kiss, Professor Richard Dawkins, Nigella Lawson, Albert Einstein, Joseph Goebbels, the Celtic Olympus, The Congregatio pro Doctrina Fidei … just to name but a few.
Aside from being a cosmopolitan work it is a one of a kind personal social commentary on early 21st century Ireland as it contains several pages devoted exclusively to the author’s historic and courageous bid to become the 9th President of Ireland. Note: the work doesn’t contain any images/photographs. {Cover artwork: ‘Hermit in the Desert’ Alessandro Magnasco (1667-1749)}
