Description

Following 'Reservations in Orange and Green', this title, also dating from 2013, is divisible into 24 numbered sections all but one of which is of a largely aphoristic character suitable to the continuation of the author's philosophy into new realms of metaphysical speculation and, indeed, logic, with one or two modifications of previous theories supplementing what is largely original new material, including, for the sake of variety, some poetic fancies and not a little autobiography of both a personal and circumstantial nature. The 'literature' alluded to above has less to do with this, however, than with the short story that rounds off the project, and does so with reference to the title chosen for the work as a whole, but one particularly relevant to what is a story based in fact that happened several decades ago while John O'Loughlin was still a boy. Memory does not, of course, permit of anything approaching an exact transcription of the circumstances that existed at that time, nor would that be desirable from a literary and, in this instance, partly fictional point-of-view. But the notion of Christmas being spent in the proverbial 'doghouse' has specific reference to this chapter or section, and one should not infer any connotation with kennels or dogs.show more

About John O'Loughlin

John O'Loughlin is a London-based author who was born in Ireland of an English mother of mixed Irish descent and grew up first in Hampshire and then in Surrey, where he attended a variety of state schools. Most of his adult life has been spent at different addresses in the London Borough of Haringey, north of the River Thames, to which he moved from Surrey in 1974, and all but a few of his books have been written there, the majority of which, like this one, are of an intensely philosophical not to say metaphysical and even ideological nature.show more
