Professional reviews

"Rosenblatt's latest novel introduces us to the aging poet Thomas Murphy as he reviews his life and comes to terms with old age's challenges, curveballs, and necessary curtailments. Gerard Doyle's Irish brogue is the perfect voice for Murphy as he rambles in a meandering journey from past to present to future and back again. Listeners are advised to engage in active listening or risk getting tangled in Murphy's threads of memory, wistfulness, and regret. It's worth the effort. You will chuckle at the clever wordplay, nod in agreement at the insights, and leave the story believing that Doyle IS Murphy, a dreamer and poet you'd like to know better, who savors life even as he mourns losses and diminished capacities.
