One can only assume that you’ve clicked on a link from Mind Your Language and found yourself here. You are most welcome. I hope you find something interesting to peruse. As a new blog can be a bit much, all those posts, all that old material, and all that flim-flammery, I thought I’d make life a little easier and just give you a quick run-down.
I’m a writer and academic who happens to have Parkinson’s. These particular facts dominate my output. Here are a few of my favourite pieces.
They also serve – on the great if interminably frustrating game of cricket
BlackBeard’s Last Voyage – what my latest fictional offering looks like
‘What is truth?’ asked Pilate – on justice, and what it means
I think, therefore … ooh, what’s that shiny thing? – on the ironies of writing about not being able to write
Release the inner slut – on responses to my raving over Love and other drugs on the Prospect blog
Cartesian, moi? – on how PD separates the mind from the body
Whole lotta shakin … not going on – on PD and its erasure of the personality
There’s a lot more, and you might like to read my first piece on Parkinson’s for the Independent, a musing on Facebook and death in Prospect, or maybe just read an interview with Peter Hammill, Joe Satriani or Richard Thompson.
Thanks for dropping by, and I hope it proved a nice diversion from a damp monday morning!
