Author Sinead Tyrone will be signing copies of her latest book, The Space Between Notes through publisher NFB Publishing, from 5 to 8 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 5, at Dog Ears Bookstore & Café, 688 Abbott Road, South Buffalo.
Her third novel, The Space Between Notes “is the most creative, passionate thing I have ever produced,” said Tyrone. “It’s more than a novel … 60 poems follow the novel, all related to the story. If your heart has ever been touched by music, if musicians have ever moved your soul, if music has ever spoken words you didn’t know how to say, this book is for you.”
Rusty Morgan remembered well the photo his bandmate and best friend Terry had taken on their trip to Ireland years earlier. The brokenness of the arch depicted in the photo had haunted him long after they’d returned home. He’d had no idea then that he and his Odysseus bandmates would one day face an irreparable brokenness of their own. Brokenness came in many ways in heavy metal music world. Substance abuse, failed marriages, and the loneliness of long months spent touring were common among their peers. Rusty, Steve, Dave, Rick and Terry had won some of those battles, lost others, but always stayed connected, their brotherhood forged by the passion for music they shared and the inner battles they’d waged. One night in Cleveland shattered Odysseus’ bonds. Rusty and his Odysseus brothers now face their hardest challenge. Will they be able to regroup with one of them gone? Or will their music now be silent?
A writer, poet, photographer and traveler, Tyrone has written two other novels, Walking Through The Mist and Crossing The Lough Between, and poetry collections Fragility and A Song Of Ireland.
