A journalist sees an otherwise average house rise into the air. Two old codgers speculate about a utopian life created by writing that need never be read.

An elderly priest and an even more elderly widow scan deep space in search of the meaning that eludes them at home. A woman invites a friend from the distant past to attend her suicide. Written with great compassion and humour, Michael J. Farrell's stories are crammed with life; and they quietly celebrate all the mystery and potential of our frail existence. Just live as long as you can, they urge us, and expect the unexpected.

'This is a great collection. The stories surprise, and are full of surprises. They are funny, provocative, clever, charming, and quite brilliantly written.' -Roddy Doyle
