Two in a Million by Ben Murnane (Dublin: A&A Farmar, paperback, 2008)

€8 + FREE SHIPPING TO ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD. Signed by the author. Usually dispatched within one working day. [5] Also available as an ebook.

‘Riveting and beautifully written’ – Sunday Independent

‘Fascinating and emotionally charged… peppered with humour and an almost unsettling level of honesty… This is a remarkable story of an erudite young man’s fight for life’ – Evening Echo, ****

Ben is a normal, bright, ambitious student. The only difference between his life and yours is that he has a rare blood disease – Fanconi anaemia – which gives sufferers a life expectancy of 22 years. At the age of 16 Ben became the first person in Ireland to have a revolutionary type of bone marrow transplant. But getting through it wasn’t easy: he suffered a psychotic episode which made him unable to recognise his doctors, his parents… And, before the transplant even began, he had to tell the girl he loved that he had only a 50 per cent chance of survival. Two in a Million describes what it’s like to live with a life-threatening illness, to undergo a life-saving procedure, to recover slowly and try to live normally as a student in Dublin. Told with humour and honesty, this is a remarkable story.

Feather Silence: Poems by Ben Murnane (Dublin: A&A Farmar, paperback, 2010)

€8 + FREE SHIPPING TO ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD. Signed by the author. Usually dispatched within one working day.

‘At their best [these poems] have a little something of the simplicity of the early Kavanagh… Emotionally direct, with “the ordinariness/all hearts/demand”, the poems in Feather Silence, aside from their value as poems, are also fascinating documents in a remarkable journey of survival, testaments in every line to a brave, unbowed, enduring heart – anchored in the ordinary world, yet not afraid to dream.’ – Eamon Grennan

[7] DUBLIN ON A SHOESTRING, edited by Katherine Farmar and Ben, is [8] NOW AVAILABLE FOR ONLY €5. It’s the insiders’ guide to saving money in Ireland’s capital. [9] Check it out!
