Between The Bridge And The River
Craig Ferguson. Known and loved as the cheeky Scottish-Conan guy on the Late Late Show, with the gay robot skeleton and the puppets and SECRETARIAT! But before he landed that gig, the man wrote up a fantastic novel that I am now going to shamelessly plug.
"Between The Bridge And The River" is a fairly surreal take on religion, philosophy, sex, love, family, suicide, death, the entertainment industry, and the great unconscious. Hilarious in all the right places, poignant and thoughtful in all the other places that are also right, and everything ties together. Reading this novel got me hooked on religious philosophy, and the works of Carl Jung. And the Reader's Guide at the end will definitely have you scratching your head and straining your thinker about certain aspects of morality and life.. the universe.. everything, really.
Find it in your local bookery and you will not be disappointed.
Thank you, and have a nice day.
