Love & Magic

Four Delightfully Spun Yarns

 

A magical collection of yarns at the heart of which are truths and lessons that will leave you with a wonderfully whimsical perspective on life.

In a sense they are extraordinary tales about ordinary people, told with empathy and imagination. One shows us that, when it comes to love, you can’t disguise what’s in the eyes. Another explores the idea that the miracle of love just requires a little Yin and Yang. There’s the sensitive but tragic tale of the love of a lifetime that vanishes overnight. Finally, a man mourning a past life and love discovers that the greatest love of all is his love of life.

And in the tradition of writers like O. Henry and Dahl, Hanlon takes great delight in putting a twist in every tale. Prepare to enjoy yourself.

In his second collection of short stories John Hanlon sets out to entertain with six short and sometimes twisted tales about growing up (or never growing up).

Stealing Smokes

Some Surprising Short Stories

 

In his second collection of short stories John Hanlon sets out to entertain with six short and sometimes twisted tales about growing up (or never growing up).

In the title story, two boyhood friends meet up later in life and one of them discovers that if you practice deception there is usually a price to pay. In other stories we find megalomania often comes in small packages, children learn from adults when often the reverse should apply and even the seemingly innocent can harbour guilty secrets.

Told with cheeky irreverence in an Antipodean tone of voice, these stories, while pure fiction, will often be so close to your truths they are bound to resonate. And as is always the way with Hanlon’s stories — they’ll almost certainly get you in the end.

This book extends the thought that golf reflects life in a series of 72 lessons that explore the things golf can teach us about life and business.

Each lesson is contained within a single spread, golf lesson on the left and life lesson on the right.
