Richard Mc Sweeney
Free sample

An enriching 21st century work of original philosophical fiction ideal for throwing some light on various philosophical concerns of the individual; encouraging group discussion and inviting scholarly exploration.

An anthology of original narratives, fictional dialogues and scenic colour photographs dating from Jan. 2011 to Feb. 2013 by a lyrical philosopher of Ireland. This contemporary collectable boldly 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 Anne Boleyn, Michel de Nostredame, Edgar Cayce, James Joyce, Joseph Goebbels, Greta Garbo, The Congregatio pro Doctrina Fidei, Dalai Lama, The Holy Qur’an, Angela Merkel, Al-Waleed al-Saud, Richard Dawkins, Michel Soyer, and Homayra Sellier just to name 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 over seventy pages devoted exclusively to the author’s historic and courageous bid to become the 9th President of Ireland. (Note: only in this ebook edition are the photographs in colour; in the print they are in black and white.)

The fonts and page numbering in this ebook correspond to the 2013 hardback edition.
