"The Invisible Islands" - twenty-one beautifully crafted fictions, each illuminating a specific island in the mythic Invisible Islands archipelago. Originally inspired by the genius of Calvino and Borges, these Islands are memorable imaginative and emblematic. The real mixes with the surreal, as you travel beneath the sea from Armaigh to the Brandenburg Gate and the Forbidden City, as you journey from the remote holy island of St Eoinean's to the high ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. Steeped in real and mythic history and tradition, the Islands are utterly contemporary and international. These elegantly written fables, both humorous and humane, remind you that life is fabulous, in the true sense of the word.
