'It seemed as if the whole town had died.' Sean O'Brien left his wife and son in County Tyrone to find work as a collier in the South Wales Valleys. Years later Niahm O'Brien is dying and sends her son Jack on a quest to find out what became of his father. Sean 'Tyrone's' last letter came from 'somewhere called Aberuffern'. The brilliantly evoked valleys town of Aberuffern (the mouth of hell) becomes the central motif of this short novel, inspired by the Mexican novel Pedro Paramo by Juan Rulfo. Sean Tyrone - A Symphony of Horrors is based on a play of the same name by author, musician and playwright Mark Ryan and tells the story of Jack's odyssey from child to man and from inexperience to manhood. This is lively, blackly humorous and intelligent storytelling. The beautifully produced paperback includes a series of 20 woodcuts also created by Mark Ryan.
