Overview

Bold and Eclectic: An assortment of autobiographical, philosophical, and other thoughts by John O'Loughlin

This project combines autobiographical with philosophical material in such a way as to harmonize with the author's customary approach to anything remotely resembling an autobiography which, as on previous occasions, could not materialize were it not for his ongoing or, in this instance, consummate commitment to philosophy, which has always been his raison d'être for writing and therefore justification for anything else, including autobiography, as though the reverse of Henry Miller. In this, the third such project, the combination of the two approaches to literature is brought to a veritable apotheosis, and it would be no surprise if this paradoxically turned out to be Mr O'Loughlin's best example yet of this hybrid genre - a fitting climax to a unique vocation.

About the Author

John O'Loughlin is a London-based author who was born in Ireland of an English mother and grew up first in Hampshire and then in Surrey, where he attended a variety of state schools. Most of his adult life has been spent at different addresses in the London Borough of Haringey, north of the River Thames, to which he moved from Surrey in 1974, and all but a few of his books have been written there, the majority of which, like this one, are of an intensely philosophical not to say metaphysical and even ideological nature.
