Olympia and the Internet

by Derek Mahon

?Best known as a poet, Derek Mahon here gathers a further selection of recent prose pieces, autobiographical, critical and speculative, in a similar mode to his Red Sails (Gallery, 2014), notably on cinema, revision, clouds, caravans and horizons.
The volume includes 'Rubbish Theory', reflections on refuse in contemporary culture, and 'The Rain Bridge', a story for children. 'School Photo and Early Reading' remembers his young days in North Belfast; as does 'Olympia and the Internet', in praise of typewriters and dis-praise of information technology.
