A Very Persistent Illusion by L. C. Tyler

A hilarious, inventive and thought-provoking novel about love, madness and reality.


Chris Sorensen is having problems with reality

Inventor of the Sorensen-Birtwistle Revised Scale of Girl-Rage, Chris has a beautiful girlfriend (Virginia), two likeable potential parents-in-law (Hugh and Daphne) and a classic sports car with a leather-covered gear stick.  Impending matrimony and the car’s leaking roof seem to be the only clouds on the horizon.

But his apparently comfortable world is turned upside down when Hugh dies suddenly and Daphne (after one Irish Cream too many) reveals some shocking information.

Meanwhile...

In an inn, in the Danube Valley, in the seventeenth century, a certain cantankerous philosopher seems to have some words of guidance for our modern-day hero.  We join Virginia and Chris (and René) as they seek to uncover the truth about Hugh, themselves and the meaning of life.

Peer & Press Reviews

Compelling and clever, I really couldn’t put it down.  A deceptively light read.  I laughed out loud.

Alison Joseph, author of the Sister Agnes Mysteries

Warm, intelligent and beautifully observed.

Press Association

It’s a thought-provoking book which highlights that very thin and fragile line between sanity and madness, the nature of families and the meaning of life.  Oh – and reality.

Sue Magee, The Bookbag
