The Perduror: A Reading at the Merg Sessions

I was among over a dozen writers doing readings in late 2016 in a library about twenty miles from where I live – and this haltingly-delivered section of the novel below was part of the reading.

It’s only my second event like this and the writers there are always very welcoming and supportive. The event is called the Merg Sessions, held at Tallaght Library in south Dublin once a month. Organiser Kenneth Nolan (pictured above) named the event after his cat Merg (also pictured above).
So here's a taster of the novel – a scene between my narrator/hero of the novel (a young man named Blythe) and Makita, a young French woman who has captured his heart.
