In Gethsemane : Transcripts of a Journey

Terry McDonagh’s book review – 

IN GETHSEMANE – Transcripts of a Journey – by Mark Ulyseas is ‘a book to gig and dip into’…it is a series of fascinating essays on philosophy, psychology, characters ‘on the road’ and in pubs in Bali; on the nature of Hinduism, life in Goa…it’s a book to take with you on the train…we meet Simone de Beauvoir, Oscar Wilde. The author says: ‘On my journey through many countries and the twilight zone, I have been fortunate to break bread with the blessed and the damned’. Human nature is frail. It can be dressed up in a suit and cloaked in hypocrisy but in our hearts, we are obsessive whores who long to talk; to tell our story in public and cry in private. These essays are real and surreal; they are emotional roller coasters that move us through worlds of rich language and cultures…and we are richer for having had the experience. A fascinating look at life through the eyes of a man who knows how to observe. – Terry McDonagh, Celebrated Irish Poet, Playwright and Writer

Terry McDonagh‘s book review –

I have just finished reading, SEDUCTIVE AVATARS OF MAYA…a great read with a very unexpected and dramatic finish…Mark Ulyseas immerses us in a confused, dark, dystopian world of real and unreal figures…we feel ‘pity and fear’…and we laugh…but wonder why…enjoy this book. It’s worth it.

Ozlem Warren’s book review of RAINY


RAINY - My Friend and Philosopher by Mark Ulyseas

We all need Rainy the dog in our lives
by Ozlem Warren on 2 Jun. 2016
Format: Kindle Edition

Mark’s wonderful book gave me a very precious dose of pause to reflect, feel the gratitude, even at darker times; accept that there is a balance in the universe and it is this balance that sustains life. As Rainy says “You cannot change anything but what you can do is to make life enjoyable and bearable for all of those people in your life, seeking your love.” We all need Rainy the dog in our lives to remind what matters most.
