Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Staring at Lakes is about the essence of love and marriage, about growing old and sitting in cars and staring at lakes. Codice inventario libreria
Riassunto: Throughout his life Michael Harding has lived with a sense of emptiness through faith, marriage, fatherhood and his career as a writer, the pervading sense of darkness and unease never left. When he was fifty-eight he became physically ill, and found himself in the grip of a deep melancholy. Here, in this beautifully written memoir, he talks with openness and honesty about his journey: leaving the priesthood when he was in his thirties, settling in Lei trim with his artist wife, the depression which eventually overwhelmed him, and how, ultimately, he found a way out of the dark, by accepting the fragility of love, and the importance of now. Staring at Lakes started out as a book about depression. And then became a story about growing old, the essence of love and marriage, and sitting in cars, staring at lakes.
Winner of the Irish Book Awards' National Book Tokens' Non-Fiction Book of the Year and The John Murray Show Listeners' Choice Award, a candid memoir of a middle-aged man on the verge of disaster?and how love brings him back from the brink
Michael Harding gives a brutally honest and beautifully written account of his journey through life, and his failed attempts to find meaning which brought about a long period of depression. But this is a love story and Michael comes to realize that all things are sustained by love and this is where real meaning resides.
