Michael O'Leary's cricket novel republished
A Tingling Catch contributor Michael O'Leary has just republished two of his novels (including his cricket novel Out of It) as e-books.
His website states: “The books Straight and Out of It were first published by his company Earl of Seacliff Art Workshop in the 1980s. The two novels have maintained a cult status in New Zealand literature for their dada and surrealist techniques."
Both books are available from Amazon.com as Kindle e-books.
Six poems from Michael O'Leary's Out of It appeared in A Tingling Catch.
