Just imagine. A matchbox with a special gift. A matchbox that has stored up tales, witnessed from the pockets of several previous owners. The final owner and friend of the matchbox has tuned in and received the stories of varying experiences of different people. This idiosyncratic debut novel meanders through a series of apparently unrelated tales about people and situations encountered over a number of years. But are they really unrelated? In both the light and dark moments revealed in the tales, readers will delve into their memories to explore where their experience 'matches' what is being related. Eventually the tales give way to a poignant, uplifting and somewhat surprising conclusion. What if someone suddenly discovered the life for which they had constantly yearned? The life which they had dreamed about so often but which seemed to have been destined never to become a reality? Just imagine...A Book About a Matchbox is an intriguing selection of short stories that vary in context and impact. Each tale is accessible and light-hearted, but also contains meaningful and thought-provoking underlying themes. The stories have accumulated over recent decades and their themes will resonate with adult readers of all ages.Biographie de l'auteur :
