Launch of UNEASY BEDFELLOWS, a new novel by Jack Harte, published by Scotus Press ( Jack Harte is a novelist, short story writer, and playwright. He is the Founder and a former Chairperson of the Irish Writers Centre.
About the novel:
Two young friends who have bonded through poetry join an expedition to Derry on the fateful August weekend in 1969 when the history of Northern Ireland took a violent turn. Their bus encountered the barbarism before it even crossed the Border. The Incident coloured the rest of their lives, and left them with the fraught dilemma as to whether they should dedicate themselves to Culture or to Civilisation, two diametrically opposed objectives. The teaching profession and the cause of secular education provide some common ground, but they have a long struggle to find balance and harmony in their lives.
