Love Is Not The End

'Love Is Not The End' is an unfinished magical realist drama following the lives, hopes, dreams, fears, secrets and guilts of a collection of people living in a faraway district of our city.
The great unfinished dream of our beloved Eugene Bliss was compiled by his editor from the notes, drafts and ideas he left behind. This edition was presented to those in attendance at the funeral of Mr. Eugene Bliss, who left us on his birthday aged somewhere between thirty-nine and two hundred and sixty-seven.
Eugene Bliss was born in the city by the lake and for his first few years lived in relative comfort with his mother, a renowned baker. As a boy without much to verbally say, and with few friends, he wrote constantly. His mother and neighbours, celebrated illiterates, did not know where Eugene discovered this ability. When Eugene was 16 he moved to the Tropics of Bath and spent his formative years in the Neon District making a name for himself as a barfly writer, fierce drinker and gifted with the golden tongue that saw him never once receive a punch to the nose, despite his volatile melancholia. It wasn’t until Eugene met known explorer and adventurer Szilvia XXX from that dark and deranged land where they speak Italian over breakfast and Hungarian during supper that he settled into his literary groove. Eugene has, by his own proud admission, written more books than he has ever read and while the vast majority reside in his battered notebooks and stuffed in desk drawers, those that have been released are generally received with critical nonchalance. Eugene rarely complained. Eugene Bliss passed away sometime in his two hundredth and sixty-seventh year, found by Ted Bane curled up and smiling in the cubicle of Jackie Dolan’s Cocktail Lounge. His last work ‘Love Is Not The End’ was completed by TheNeverPress and presented to those at his funeral.
'Love Is Not The End’ is presented in beautiful paperback. Cover designed by Adam Sibley and Hayley Joan and printed with a matte, waxed finish, the book feels beautiful in the hand. The interior, formatted by Graham Thomas, is printed on luxurious 50lb/75gsm creme paper.
