Blue Weekend is a comic novel based on a Buddhist meditation weekend. Brendan, a feckless under achiever, is completely ignorant of the aesthetics and is driven there by the lust of Patricia. She is driven by a deep love and compassion for all living beings. Unfortunately, for him, this doesn’t extent specifically to Brendan who quickly realises he doesn’t want to be there.
What could possibly go wrong?
What ensues is a light-hearted investigation of the Western mind, Buddhism and meditation meeting an Irish man whose driving force is hedonism.
