The Last Pub on Earth–Peter E. Murphy

The_Last_Pub_on_Earth_CoverThe Last Pub on Earth resurrects Peter Murphy’s alter-ego, Garry Morgan, a persona he adopted and abandoned decades earlier while living as an undocumented worker in Wales. Part Prufrock, part Pinocchio, Garry Morgan is ridiculed, pitied, and comforted before finally laid to rest. These poems conjure the fragmented postmodern identity and raise questions about what we owe to a self we’ve invented, outgrown, and left behind. This freewheeling reverie reimagines life before the ground-zero of Murphy’s recovery from alcohol addiction, a journey whose first step was taken on the feast day of St. Govan, whose chapel is depicted on the front cover.
