Eternal City

Eternal City

Author(s): Mark Thompson

Location(s): Rome

Genre(s): Fiction

Era(s): Contemporary

Life can change in a split second, and so it does for twenty-eight-year-old photographer Finn Chambers. One careless decision at the Cimitero Acattolico in the eternal city of Rome, finds him falling head first onto Shelley’s tomb, to his death.

He awakes to a beautiful afterlife surrounded by long-dead poets, artists and thinkers, including Shelley, Keats, Gramsci, Sanchez and the delightful Lady Mary von Haas, and these luminaries test Finn’s values and principles in a way they have never been tested before.

Uncomfortable truths require honest assessment when the 21st century’s lust for celebrity, drugs, and fifteen minutes of fame, is questioned by others from centuries past but his new life finds much in common with his previous life, with love, art, sex, music, humour and irreverence, all experienced on this different and fascinating plane.

For Finn Chambers there is life after death – and it’s a life worth living.
