Part memoir, part cultural study, Booking Passage is a brilliant, often comedic guidebook for those “fellow travelers, fellow pilgrims” making their way through the complexities of their own lives and times.
Thomas Lynch's essays, poems and stories have appeared in The Atlantic, Granta, The New York Times, the New Yorker, the Paris Review, and elsewhere. He lives in Milford, Michigan where he has been the funeral director since 1974, and in Moveen, Co. Clare, Ireland where he keeps an ancestral cottage.

Editorial Reviews

[Lynch’s] is a subtle, quick-moving mind, and it is a pleasure to walk beside his mental perambulations . . . rendered with love and grace. — Detroit Free Press[Lynch] draws an enticing picture of his home away from home: the dreamlike environs of Moveen, County Clare. — New York Times Book ReviewHe’s no mere tourist but a man who’s made a deep personal commitment to the land from which his forebears came and who has a sensitive, nuanced understanding of the place and its people. . . . It’s a lovely book. — Washington Post
