Carrick Ares grows up without any particular beliefs in anything. He is boring, and proudly so. Yet when he suddenly dies in a car accident, he experiences what he feels to be the afterlife. It then causes him to go through a huge existential crisis. The only person with whom he speaks about it is a psychiatrist, Paul Turnstone. They together explore the theories Carrick has about life. Carrick goes mad and thinks that he finds the truth of existence. Struggling to dress himself, hinders not his adamance that he knows the answers to the biggest questions of life. He produces a book, The Religion of Self-Enlightenment, which becomes the expression of his theories. It discusses exactly how to heal the crises which are now plaguing individuals and the wider world.

Emily Scialom

I was born in Hackney, London in 1984. After ten years of my childhood spent in the spiritual heartland of Glastonbury, my family and I relocated to Cambridge. There I completed my studies at Hills Road Sixth Form College and then went to Liverpool University to complete my BA in Music and Media. 

I was a nationally published poet as a child. At seventeen I was internationally published. Songwriting led to my forming a band and the limitations of poetical verse then caused me to begin to write The Religion of Self-Enlightenment.
