The final published work by the renowned Mairtin O Cadhain, this novella follows a widower as he attempts to plan his wife's funeral arrangements without money, direction, or whiskey. Thrown into a desert of unknowing, he knows not where to turn or what to do. In a poignant meditation on regret, possibilities, maybes, and avoidances, the author portrays a man hopelessly watching as the people in the world go about their lives around him. With black humor sprinkled throughout, the book, a profound look at psychic loss and puzzlement by a writer at the height of his powers, illustrates O Cadhain's conviction that tragedy and comedy are inextricably connected.

Bringing this work to an English-speaking audience for the first time, this volume includes an illuminating introduction by Alan Titley, whose skillful translation captures the spirit and tone of the original.

Journey To The Edge
"Enda O'Coineen's remarkable story of taking risk to the limit in his solo global navigation and also in business.

Enda O'Coineen sails on a sea of obsession - guided on his voyages by the goals he sets for himself.

When he failed at his first attempt to sail solo around the world due to a broken mast, his default mode was to honour his initial goal and succeed second time around.

During four months at sea, the Irish entrepreneur used his battles against the elements to strengthen his belief that for every risk, there is potential for reward.

The trick is knowing the balance both in adventure, in life and in work.

In his one-man floating universe where he felt both free and shackled at the same time, it occurred to him that modern life has become more restraining on our basic freedoms.

He also discovered that money creates rather than fills vacuums in life. This made Enda all the more determined to ensure that his 'Journey To the Edge' would fuel his desire ""to put something back into society.""

Enda's book is therefore more than just a faithful recording of time and place; it is an exploration of the maze life puts before us from which we can learn and grow.
