English:

Seán Gaffney’s fifth suite of poems has now seen the light of day: A Journey through Mourning. A suite in prose and poetry.

This suite is a mixture of prose and poetry in a strong and touching celebration of his son, Dara Gaffney, who at the age of fourteen was diagnosed with leukemia. Only a few months later Dara died from his disease.

What is taking place here is an essential part of Seán’s life, where he holds Dara within himself during the mourning process that simultaneously is a life process, in a recurring dialogue each year at Dara’s birth and death days. A life journey with mourning as both a driving force and an emotional landscape.

The book is now available as an eBook in the webshop of Freedom Xpress [https://www.freedomxpress.net/]. In a couple of weeks it will also be available in a printed edition at the BoD Bookshop [https://www.bod.se/bokshop/] – and later also on Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk and other online bookshops.

Svenska:

Seán Gaffneys femte diktsamling har nu sett dagens ljus: A Journey through Mourning. A suite in prose and poetry.

Sviten utgör en blandning av prosa och poesi i en stark och berörande hyllning till sin son, Dara Gaffney, som redan vid fjorton års ålder drabbades av leukemi och dog efter en kort tid. Här utspelar sig en väsentlig del av Seáns liv, där han bär Dara inom sig under den sorgeprocess som samtidigt är en livsprocess, i en återkommande dialog varje år vid Daras födelse- och dödsdagar. En livsresa med sörjandet både som drivkraft och emotionellt landskap.

Boken finns nu tillgänglig som eBook i webbshop:en på Freedom Xpress [https://www.freedomxpress.net/]. Inom ett par veckor kommer den också att finnas som tryckt utgåva och kan då köpas hos BoD:s Bokshop [https://www.bod.se/bokshop/].
