The Stream of Everything By John Connell AudioBook Summary
The Stream of Everything is both a reverie and a celebration of close observation—a winding, bucolic account of the summer we discovered home, from best-selling author, John Connell.
It’s summer, and John Connell finds himself—like so many others—confined to his local area, the opportunity to freely travel and socialise cut short. His attention turns to the Camlin river—an ever-present source of life for his hometown’s inhabitants and, for John, a site of boyhood adventure, first love, family history and local legend.
He decides to canoe its course with a friend, a two-day trip requiring physical exertion and mental resilience. Despite the world growing still around them, the river teems with life—a symphony of buzzing mayfly and jumping trout. Meandering downstream, John muses on what’s brought him here: his travels, his past relationships and his battle with depression, as well as on Irish folklore, geopolitics and philosophy.
