In Another World' is a unique trip through Belfast, mapped into the mystic through the timeless music of Van 'the Man' Morrison. The aptly soulful and inventive prose stems from the electric wit of acclaimed poet and fellow Belfast man, Gerald Dawe. Struck by the extraordinary brand of rhythm and blues that was Morrison's brainchild, Dawe's book is a celebration of the inspirations that underlie Morrison's music. Silhouetted in the work is Belfast, moody and vibrant, and the formative influence of the pre-Troubles northern capital on Morrison's musical direction. Dawe's writing transmutes the tender and unforgettable strains of Morrison's work, from the release in 1968 of Astral Weeks to the publication in 2014 of Lit Up Inside: Selected Lyrics. A powerful tribute to mark Van Morrison's extraordinary accomplishments, In another world taps into his legacy's eclectic soul and is kin to its enchantments.
