It was 11pm when I checked my email for the last time and turned off my phone for what I hoped would be forever.

"Mark Boyle warm-heartedly analyses his dissatisfaction with money and modernity"

This genuine, warm-hearted analysis of the dysfunctions of our current world offers a surprisingly alluring alternative to our current malaise – if only we dared adopt it. Tomás Ó Criomhthain ends his Blasket Island memoir with the line “Ní bheidh ár leithéidí arís ann” (the likes of us will never be again). Boyle’s book suggest that B’fhéidir go mbeidh (Maybe there will).
