If you are not yet acquainted with Thomas Lynch, may I introduce a man who I most sincerely wish were my friend, my undertaker, my priest.

Thomas Lynch is a little known secret here, it seems, under-recognised and under-feted. I haven't yet met any other readers who have come across him. Yet his work is exquisite, perfect; true quality writing.

In the USA he was awarded the Heartland Prize for non-fiction, The American Book Award, and was a Finalist for the National Book Award.

First heard of here many years ago reading aloud on Radio 4, each of his tastefully produced books is a work to treasure. Poet, author, commentator on all things human, he delivers a small but wonderful package of reading pleasure every time.

'Apparition and Late Fictions' (published 2010), is a smart, black bound, hard back edition, a welcome sibling to his other non-fiction essays on his life as an undertaker in Michigan,The Undertaking: Life Studies from the Dismal Trade(published 1997) and Bodies in Motion and at Rest(published 2000). Here he offers four elegant self contained stories and a novella.

'Catch and Release' the first, will soon show you his mastery of words and the careful measured delivery of a simple tale; one that will strike home hard; the last sentence coming as a most shocking surprise. If you are keen on fishing, well, all the better for your enjoyment. 'Blood sport' draws again on Lynch's life as an funeral director and has a terrible sadness at its core.

I am a big fan of Thomas Lynch, and was looking forward to this latest work but, unfortunately, found it to be a bit below his usual standard.
