Review of ‘Why Goldfish Never Die‘ by Brian McCully (illust. by Shae Levinson) (2015, Inkshed Press Pty Ltd)
A profound reading experience, full of hope and wistful reminders on how to deal with the complexities of life and the simplicity of tangible moments that inform our existence. With unique observations, such as, ‘Bodies are born of tangible things … They are tangible things. They can be hurt and feel the wear and tear of change and tempests around them‘, the reading experience becomes deeply introspective and personal, touching the otherwise unreachable depths of the soul. The book is a magnet for people searching for illumination and Brian McCully delivers in a big way.
