The Book Of Tom


So I've been working on this book, a memory book.

It was compiled by me, but the contributors are mostly friends and relatives who cared about Tom English. We published it ourselves through Lulu.com. It was surprisingly easy. The book is pocket sized, and contains poems, stories, tales, blessings.

Tom was many things, among them -a musician, a rebel- rouser -and my uncle. He died last October and I guess this is how I'm commemorating him.

I carry the book in my bag -  there are plenty of blank pages in there - because there's always more to say.

Niamh,

I remember Tommy well from my time in the Avenue. He was always a giant of a gentleman. I'm very sorry to hear that he passed away.
