"The Night Palace" - A Romance on the Subject of Renewal"

Author's 1970s Travel Adventures Forms Basis of Eclectic Novel

SYDNEY - s4story -- Imagine travelling across Europe on a motorcycle, without any plans and free as the wind. The Night Palace by Bog O'Mullet draws on memories of such a trip the author made in the mid-1970s.

O'Mullet's novel is loosely based on that 1975-6 journey, travelling France and Germany looking for adventure. His alter ego is an older Henry Molloy, a successful businessman whose career has left him bitter and frustrated. Henry's yearnings for something more leads him to a journey of acceptance and self-fulfillment, insights won by daring to live courageously.

The book features a surprising number of twists and turns as well as unlikely relationships. It is a romance, a fable, a wacky memoir, but also a serious, nostalgic, and poetical story of another time and place, all told in O'Mullet's unique voice.

"The Night Palace is startlingly original. A spiritual noir – part globetrotting thriller, part, psychological drama – the novel follows Henry, its captivating protagonist, on his adventures (and internal, soul-seeking journey) across Europe as he finds himself entangled in bizarre and chilling plots, enmeshed in a strange world of mysterious characters, and forced to face his past and future, as each choice he makes unlocks new doors of understanding." – Charles Asher, Phi Beta Kappa Reviews
