If you’ve ever looked in the mirror and wondered what was happening on the other side of the glass, if you’ve ever watched a film and wondered what was happening on the other side of the screen, or if you’ve ever eaten marzipan without much clue as to why, then you’re unlikely to find the answers here.
But if you’ve ever read a book and wondered what was happening on the other side of the page, then this might be just what you’re looking for.
We’ve all had moments when something odd, something inexplicable, something unexpected, has happened to us. But J.R. Southall’s life has been entirely made up of those moments, moments that are as unusual as they are mystifying. Moments when time stands still and events progress after their own sweet fashion.
Tales from the Other Side of the Page is a collection of some of those moments. A book that will make you stop and wonder at the futility of existence, that will make you question just where we came from and why we’re here, that will make you tip the waiter just that little bit more generously next time you're eating out. Just don’t expect to find out what’s on the other side of the mirror. Or ever fancy marzipan.
