Where the lost things go trace the experience of losing oneself through life's most formative journeys. Fly back and forth through four decades in narratives bridging the west of Ireland and Australia - buffeted by grief, betrayal and dislocation; gliding on hope and love. Feel the weight of emptiness in the emigrant's baggage; the displacement of the Nowhere people who leave but perhaps never fully arrive, the loss at returning 'home' to find the essence of what that means - people, places and credos - has slipped away in your absence. This collection is about letting go of your concept of 'home', moving through loss, embracing hope, and finding yourself somewhere in between. Are we, after all, mostly the sum of what we gain from all our losses? Book jacket.
