A loosely intertwined narrative of 56 short chapters, some only a sentence long, Blink and the World Goes Blank is about the search for meaning in places devoid of it. Through the use of the second-person narrative, Filbert Conroy looks at the human condition from an almost neutral standpoint, reporting on it as an arbiter rather than participant. Some of the freshest metaphors and descriptions are found within its pages, the kind of writing that makes you sit up a little straighter and laugh out loud at its brilliance. Feeling lost or feeling found, Conroy makes it clearer why we feel anything at all.

Four months after the publication of the On Lives Subway Supplement, On Lives Press is proud to announce its second release, Filbert Conroy’s Blink and the World Goes Blank. ($3.99 USD)
