Leaving a rural Northamptonshire comprehensive to study philosophy at University College London was always going to be a jarring experience for Fergus Malone. Growing up in a big Irish immigrant family had already made him a bit of an outsider, after all.

Though insistent that he can forge his own destiny, Fergus abruptly learns that forces he had barely even acknowledged implacably compete to shape him: claims of blood, brain, heart and flesh all clamour to be heard.

Beneath it all, as he faces inner crisis, Fergus finds himself re-enacting the ancient and unending quarrel between poetry and philosophy.

What’s love got to do with it? Maybe everything.

Kit McQuinn studied, and then taught, philosophy for many years in both the public and private sectors. He has published poetry (in numerous British and Irish periodicals) and philosophical articles on theodicy, freedom and personhood. Kit enjoys time in France, Italy and Ireland and is based in the English countryside, which he especially loves.
