Relentlessly honest about his feelings and his failings as a husband and a lover, and touching on everything from jealousy to the loss of his child, Inglis provides a compellingly written and raw portrait of a man struggling to comprehend love, death and the complexities of living. Tom Inglis was born and raised in Dublin. He and Aileen met as teenagers and developed a lifelong love. They married and had three children, Arron, Olwen and Luke (who died tragically at nine months). Tom is Associate Professor of Sociology in UCD and lives in Dublin.
