This months Book Club choice is Hanging with the Elephant, a story of how not to meditate, written by Michael Harding. If you are reading along with us, we'd love to hear what you think of the book - you can email TodaySOR@rte.ie with Book Club in your subject.
In this new book, Michael Harding is back in Leitrim, in the northwest of Ireland. His wife has just left for a six week trip to Poland and, in her absence, he is alone for the first time since his illness two years earlier. While alone he ponders on the relationship between men and women and revisits his mother's death—and with his own inimitable humor and insight—once again looks at the meaning of life, death, and the journey in between.
