One year ago today, we gave you

The White Mountain woman and her homemade ice cream.
The hummingbirds in Uncle Leo’s mustache.
The wise old oaks at Shepherd’s Point.
Apples, crows, and pancakes.
A dream about George.
A man and his son.
A life undone.
And Mary.

~ Note ~

At this time I’d like to thank, once again, each and every one of you
who has welcomed A Listening Thing into your home.

It’s my belief that a book lives and grows (or wilts and dies) one reader at a time.
What does the future hold for Stephen Monroe? No one really knows,
but if we were to ask him, he’d probably say that the answer
is most readily found in the mirror.

In the interim, I point to the reviews and comments
his urgent acerbic-poetic narration has received,
and which are highlighted on my website.

To those new to the book who are courageous enough to take the plunge,
I say welcome.

In these difficult, pressurised times, this book reminds us what it is to be human.

Buy it now if you haven't already done so.

Jonathan and Brad, I hope you both know how much your having the book, and having read it, means to me. Thank you.

I loved this book and I would recommend it to anyone who reads your blog, William. I am so happy to own my copy :)


William Michaelian said...

Thank you very much, Jan. It’s in loving hands, I know, and a heart as big to match.

And what a day that was, my friend, but nothing to compare with the day I received it--thanks again, William.

William Michaelian said...

Vassilis, I thank you. Stephen needs a friend like you; in fact his life depends on it. As does mine.
