In this sequel, he brings the inspiring stories of his women friends up to date, tackles difficult subjects like the lingering effects of cancer, and the passing of Aengus Fanning (former editor of the Sunday Independent), and writes movingly of his Civil Partnership ceremony to his long-time partner Terry. Michael shares his deeply insightful and unique reflections on writing, art, language, love, family and friendship, and the seductive charms of his beloved Spain. Thought-provoking and eloquent, The House of Pure Being explores the inner complexities of an exceptional writer, and in doing so, highlights the warmth and compassion of a much-admired man.
