Imagine if the Fool of the Major Arcana had been reincarnated in the 1960's Glasgow? imagine his journey as he met the Tarot's archetypes in his life of poverty and sectarianism? His love for his caring foster mum ( The Empress), his lessons in life from the maverick car mechanic ( The Magician)and the fortune teller (the High Priestess) would enrich our understanding of the tarot by making it more real and familiar.

Eddie Reilly is the foolish man, a Weegie ( Glaswegian) on his lifes journey in an area of poverty, violence, unemployment and great character. He is interviewed by a history student for her degree dissertation and tells his story in the first person with much warmth and humor. His feelings on 9/11 ( the Tower) , his memories of time in prison ( Justice) and his love for his family and friends( Judgment) and his wife ( The Lovers) give insights into the archetypes like never before. From innocence to wisdom and knowledge, it is some story!
