"The Vacant Chair echoes throughout my life. They're vibrant, mystical, time-travelling things, telling tales of the end of lives, of invisible families, of no-longer friends, half-written legendary lovers. Story chairs indeed."
In his sixth autobiographical collection of poetry and prose Gerry explores his fascination with Ireland and a culture steeped in storytelling. Recalling news reports from his childhood he retraces history, experiencing passion, politics and conflict in a poignant and provocative road trip through time.
The Story Chair includes a Foreword by Abby Oliveira and concludes with the RPF play 'Last Ceilidh in Liverpool'.
