Description

It's not easy to make a stand for peace, when you live in a world which is besotted with war... Get your copy of Joss Sheldon's radical rhyming-novel today! This is the story of Alfred Freeman, a boy who does everything he can; to serve humankind. He feeds five-thousand youths, salves-saves-and-soothes; and champions the maligned. He helps paralytics to feel fine, turns water into wine; and gives sight to the blind. When World War One draws near, his nation is plunged into fear; and so Alfred makes a stand. He opposes the war and calls for peace, disobeys the police; and speaks out across the land. He makes speeches, and he preaches; using statements which sound grand. But the authorities hit back, and launch a potent-attack; which is full of disgust-derision-and-disdain. Alfred is threatened with execution, and suffers from persecution; which leaves him writhing in pain. He struggles to survive, remain alive; keep cool and stay sane. 'Involution & Evolution' is a masterpiece of rhyme, with a message which echoes through time; and will get inside your head. With colourful-characters and poetic-flair, it is a scathing critique of modern-warfare; and all its gory-bloodshed. It's a novel which breaks new ground, is sure to astound; and really must be read! Probably the best epic-poem of the modern era, Involution & Evolution is fast-paced masterpiece that will touch your soul... "One of the best anti-war novels I have read" - Kevin J.

About Joss Sheldon

Joss Sheldon is a scruffy nomad, an unshaven layabout, and a good for nothing hobo. Born in 1982, he was bought up in one of the anonymous suburbs which wrap themselves around London's beating heart. And then he escaped! With a degree from the London School of Economics to his name, Sheldon had spells selling falafel at music festivals, being a ski-bum, and failing to turn the English Midlands into a haven of rugby league. Before, in January 2013, he went to McLeod Ganj in India; a village which plays home to thousands of angry monkeys, hundreds of Tibetan refugees, and the Dalai Lama himself. It was there, wrapped up in a blanket which featured some animated teddies, that Sheldon wrote 'Involution & Evolution'; a book about love in a era of hatred, truth in a era of lies, and peace in a era of war.show more
