Beyond the Silence – Autoethnography An Act of Will

Beneath Silence was written under Seosamh's birth name, Patrick Coffey. Seosamh has discontinued the publication; it is therefore now out of print - although available from resellers (at extraordinary prices). It had a highly successful run, but Seosamh decided to re-write it as the opening chapter of his NEW Memoir, Beneath Silence.

New Memoir


Beneath Silence


"The silence is an awakening prelude to a story. Experienced from deep within, at the depths of the gut; it finishes splattered unceremoniously on display, like projectile vomit – uncontrolled and uncontrollable"

"I am soon left with just raindrops to obscure my vision"
