An Impossible Life follows the lives of three major characters during the summer of 2008: a psychiatrist about to announce a major breakthrough in the treatment of mental disorders; an entrepreneur trying to bring off his greatest coup; a research scientist who journeys over the Pyrenees and across Northern Spain to Santiago de Compostela.
The novel pieces together the complex patterns and absurdities of modern day life-greed, the dehumanising effect of the electronic age and the fragmentation of society. These are some of the themes dealt with in an insightful and humorous way.
The author probes not only the self-deception of this group of people, but their hopes and loves as well. As the novel moves towards its climax they are forced, one by one, to confront the true nature of the world they live in.

About the Author

John Bray was born in Dublin, Ireland. In his youth he enjoyed the optimism of the sixties and the love of fresh water lakes. His fiction includes many essays and short stories. He lives with his family on the shores of a lake which pumps out eight million gallons of spring water every day. This is where his novel is set and why Lough Shiven is icy cold and crystal clear.
