Astral Travel, Paperback / softback Book

Astral Travel Paperback / softback

Part of the Salt Modern Fiction series

Paperback / softback

Description

Astral Travel, about a charismatic but troubled Irishman and his effect on his family, explores the way that the secrets forged by cultural, religious and sexual prejudice can reverberate down the generations.

It's also about telling stories, and the fact that the tales we tell about ourselves can profoundly affect the lives of others.

In a framing narration that exposes the slippery and contingent nature of story, an adult daughter, brought up on romantic lore about her now dead father but having experienced him very differently, tells how she tried to write about him, only to come up against too many mysteries and clashing versions of the family's past.

Yet when a buried truth emerges, the mysteries can be solved, and, via storytelling's power of empathy, she finally makes sense of it all.
