The pain which has been travelling up my body has emerged between my shoulder blades, which now clench together like pincers to try to squeeze the life out of it (an action over which I have not the slightest control).

Mick Jackson does an excellent job of detailing the life of a truly eccentric, quirky man. I read this book in two days, but wished it had gone on many more. I laughed aloud many times and noticeably cringed while reading about his surgery
Mick Jackson does an excellent job of detailing the life of a truly eccentric, quirky man. I laughed aloud many times and noticeably cringed while reading about his surgery.
