According To Mark by H.B. O'Neill
“According To Mark entertained me. It horrified me. It moved me. It disturbed me. It rattled me. It broke my heart. It gave me some odd hope.” – H.C. Newton
Robert is unravelling.
Following a devastating break up he finds himself distraught, desperate, and increasingly confused.
When his literary hero, Mark Twain begins to communicate with him, Robert initially takes solace in Twain’s innate wisdom. Quite quickly though warning bells start to sound, and it becomes clear that Mark's whispered, often cryptic advice, could prove dangerous.
As Robert's mental health continues to deteriorate, he embarks on a quest around London using Twain’s words as his guide and inspiration.
Will listening to his hero lead to solace and recovery, or is it an undertaking that can only end in tragedy?
“A broken man seeking answers in a broken world. Channelling Lewis Carroll, Spike Milligan and Twain himself, it’s full of laugh out loud humour, yet also a book filled with terrible heartache and searing pain. And in these times, I sense it’s a book of great importance. ‘According To Mark’ is a novel of truly stunning originality” – Ian Ayris
