“The book was a delight.”
In this unorthodox autobiographical collection of essays the author invites the reader into a world of travel, teaching, education, entertainment, chess, despair, political intrigue, faith and Catholicism. From beginning to end the reader will find moments of laughter and sadness and, on occasion, the absurd. This is a quest and a voyage into an unknown future we all share. From a pilgrimage in Spain to brewery tours to punch-ups and from cliff diving competitions in Oman to coach trips in Saudi Arabia. A life – characteristic in its vicissitudes and variety – is explained, mourned and celebrated in this compelling book.
