shley Stokes’ comic masterpiece stars Nathan Flack, a writer exiled in a backwater teaching creative writing to a group of high-maintenance cranks and fantasists. When a very literary ghost by the name of James O'Mailer starts to haunt Flack, he has to ask himself: is he sinking into a nether world of delusion, or is he actually O'Mailer's instrument?

 

 

 

 

 

Praise for TOUCHING THE STARFISH:

"Crisp, witty and scalpel-sharp, Touching the Starfish doesn't miss a trick in its arch depiction of the orthodoxies and absurdities of Creative Writing Programmes and the many varieties of pond-life to be found therein. It's deadly accurate too on the often hilarious miseries of the writing life."

-- Lindsay Clarke.

 

Praise for TOUCHING THE STARFISH:

"The work of an anarchic imagination stuffed with incident and mordantly humorous observations."

-- Eastern Daily Press.
