Robert Irwin: Tom’s Version

The latest addition to my website is Robert Irwin‘s Tom’s Version. This is a sort of follow-up to his previous book The Runes Have Been Cast but it stands on its own. The eponymous Tom meets Molly at an encounter group. Tom is an Irish would-be poet warehouse manager and somewhat naive. He gets unwittingly embroiled in the life of Molly and her group, including an ex who wants to kill her, a cynical Times Literary Supplement editor, an Oxford don who speaks from the grave via a tape recording and NASA looking for ghosts on Mars. It concludes with the obligatory detective revealing all in the lounge of a country house, only there is no detective and no murder – yet. It is all great fun as Irwin mocks all and sundry.
