Goodreads Author


Member Since
November 2013


I was born in England and have lived and worked in France and Ireland for the last few years; I'm now resident in Ireland. My interests are many and varied and in particular I'm interested in old valve radios, machinery and design from the 1930’s, for which I have a strange nostalgia, though I was never there. I trained as a printer (compositor) with a flair for typography and graphic design and was able to use these skills in other varied employment after leaving the printing industry. Though I have written manuals, pamphlets, posters, adverts and other paraphernalia, I have never written a book. Until now.

Enough has been written about this great book - so that saves me writing a load more waffle that has already been said.
It's enough to say that if you only ever read one Graham Greene, it should be this one.

Renée Paule
“Walk straight ahead
Listen to no one
Trust not in the walls or doorways
For they will mislead
And close behind you
As you walk through
The forest, not knowing
Where you’ve come from
Or where you’re going …
If anywhere at all.”
Renée Paule, Just Around The Bend: Más o Menos

Fyodor Dostoyevsky
“It takes something more than intelligence to act intelligently.”
Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Crime and Punishment

Milan Kundera
“Anyone whose goal is 'something higher' must expect someday to suffer vertigo. What is vertigo? Fear of falling? No, Vertigo is something other than fear of falling. It is the voice of the emptiness below us which tempts and lures us, it is the desire to fall, against which, terrified, we defend ourselves.”
Milan Kundera, The Unbearable Lightness of Being

Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
“People have to talk about something just to keep their voice boxes in working order so they'll have good voice boxes in case there's ever anything really meaningful to say.”
Kurt Vonnegut, Cat's Cradle

“It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.”
