Have you ever had a book that changed your life? When I read The Epic of Gilgamesh as a young man, I felt the writer of that book reach across all those centuries with his long arm, touch my shoulder and say 'Hey.' I felt his story of the struggle to lead a good life in the face of death so clearly that it seemed to be happening to me. Yet Gilgamesh was the bronze-age king of a wild land and I was a kid sitting in a living room, watching over his sick mother.
THE LAST DAYS OF THE LACUNA CABAL is an attempt to capture my jaw-dropped bewilderment in the face of reading that story. I've handed the book over to twelve squabbling members of a proud book club called The Lacuna Cabal to see how it might wreak havoc on their lives in the same way as it did to mine.
If you'd like to talk with me about your experience of reading this book, or The Epic of Gilgamesh itself, or even another book altogether, I'd love to hear from you. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Apparently there could be a free book in it for you too.
