Set in modern day Dún Chaoin, Ireland Time and Distance is a refreshing and marvelously readable novel about journeys. It is an examination of promises, we make to each other and ourselves. Padraic MacManus, the local publican, is a true original we would all like to have as our friend. He understands the human struggle for a life of happiness and promise on this earth and each person's individual struggle with spirituality. His journey is one of discovery. At the end do we account for our actions or just disappear? Padraic's years have not shaded the lamp by which he lives. This Kerryman is bursting with vitality and wit. His self-exploration and knowledge is rooted in love, hope and human will. His stories and observations confirm an undertone of serious philosophical reflection as he impacts the lives of those he loves teaching them that failure, like hope, is an inescapable part of life and that the glue holding it together is unwavering faith.
Jim Lucason's luminous work focuses on two men's paths to purpose and peace in a place where earthly possessions are the least of things! This sentimental, tender tale ... is crammed with hilarity and wisdom. The gentle pace of life on these pages makes a lasting impression....

"Paulo Coelho is generally regarded as the main literary philosopher but in Jim Lucason we may just have found our own." Mike O'Hare - West Kerry Live
"Steeped in modern Irish legend and history, the novel conveys a sense of the otherworldly, even as it tells a very decent, gentle, often humorous story of an Irish pub owner, his lost but not forgotten love, and a young visitor trying to find a path in life." Deborah Minsky - The Provincetown Banner
