by Molly McCloskey

Want to escape from your busy schedule? Join Gillian at her retreat in contemporary Ireland, with a view to 'decelerate'. A gentle satire on the dysfunctional, 'self-help' generation, that leaves you with more questions than answers.


She was no longer behaving according to the Alzheimer's timeline Gillian kept in her desk drawer. The symptoms had begun appearing and disappearing faster than Gillian could develop strategies to cope with them. The latest was something called expressive aphasia, which meant Gillian couldn't even find the words any more to ask her day's supply of questions. (It was one of the things that made Gillian weepy when she was alone, the thought of Grace greeting each day with a little satchel of questions she'd packed.)
