Description

I think this is the first time he has written about the loss of a child and the impact on him, which was a very emotionally written chapter as one would expect. We’ve done lots of live children’s book events together, and sometimes he does funny drawings of me behind my back on stage.

Exploring the roles that trauma and grief have played in his own life, Michael investigates the road to recovery, asking how we can find it within ourselves to live well again after – or even during – the darkest times of our lives.When he awoke, he was a different person: unable to speak or walk, and with foggy vision and hearing in only one ear. Exploring the roles that trauma and grief have played in his own life, Michael investigates the road to recovery, asking how we can find it within ourselves to live well again after—or even during—the darkest times of our lives.

The Champ: Terry Downes - known as 'The Paddington Express' - was a world champion boxer, US Marine, gangsters' favourite and latter-day film star and businessman. The book stands as a poignant and insightful testament to resilience, offering itself as an indispensable companion for those who have loved and lost or wrestled with life's hardships and emerged victorious. I did at first assume it would be a follow up from this book, documenting more about his recovery from COVID-19, and it is to a point, but it’s also about his life, the difficult things he’s had to go through and what lessons he has learned through them.His recovery is a blessing and I enjoyed reading about how he is recovering and learning to live with what he went through.

The effects of “long Covid” continue to plague him, however, including a debilitating loss of vision in his left eye, and of hearing in his left ear. Written with her trademark deadpan humour, Urzila's memoir is full of great stories about both the big things in life and the little things. But the book was padded out with chapters of what came across as random thoughts which I for one didn’t find very enlightening. Throughout, the tales in this collection exemplify themes and ideas related to work and the class system, sometimes in wish-fulfilling ways.He was presenting me with a manifesto he’d written about the many different kinds of love we must have: for our lovers, and our children, our parents, and so on. With rare exceptions such as bank holidays, the book group meets on the first Wednesday of every month at 7. James Kettle, Jon Hunter (Author), Alex Horne, Dave Gorman, Gyles Brandreth, Jack Whitehall, Michael J. Rosen is very straightforward about the fact that the things that helped him come back from extreme illness and grief will not work, or aren't available, for everyone, but even those for whom these things won't work will find ideas for things that will.

Here, poems old and new are balanced against an immensely readable narrative; both an extraordinary account and a powerful tool for talking to children about the Holocaust. Accustomed to dull chores in a childless household and hosting her husband’s wearisome business clients for dinner, Sarah suddenly finds herself questioning everything she thought she knew, as her investigation reveals that people long believed dead are still among the living, while the living are fast joining the dead.Some added new information; I was touched, for example, by Rosen's descriptions of the care afforded to him by NHS staff when he was treated for Covid. My wife was in hospital for three months a couple of years ago, and in intensive care for two weeks.
