What If? A Chronicle of What Might Have Been

  • €16.00


What is it? 
What if Joyce had never met Nora?
What if Roy Keane had gone back to Saipan?
What If? draws both a moustache and a monobrow onto some of the biggest focal points in history, and challenges the reader to look the other way. These alternative endings bring to life an imaginary world turned upside down by Einstein remaining a violinist, St Bridget inventing the orthodontic retainer, Lincoln losing his theatre tickets, and a living, breathing, eighty-one-year-old Elvis releasing an album with Adele.
These essays are written by charming, gifted authors from Dublin to San Francisco, and coupled with lavishly produced hand-drawn illustrations by Annie West. What If? is a good-natured gallivant through some eccentric alternative endings.
