On 1st November 2011, Paul Clifton self-published his book entitled ‘Slices of Life’ – an anthology of short stories and poems based on a reflection of life seen through the eyes of a young person.
Each of the stories and poems deal with: young love, old age, social networking and death with observant sensitivity. Much of what lies within the pages of the book will strike a chord with each reader. ‘Slices of Life’ delivers drama, suspense and trauma.
Paul says, “I want people to be able to relate to this book as a reflection of each persons individual life whether it is a reflection of matter or a reflection of emotion. I have aimed this book to attract the young adults (15-25 years) with the topic areas I have dealt with being that reflection of their lives.
Although there is definitely no restriction for other age groups, as I also want ‘Slices of Life’ to be a type of remembrance or reminiscence of past times.”
