Hmm. Another re-read.
I read this first not long after it came out, shortly before it made Paul Pritchard the first person to win the Boardman-Tasker prize twice. It stuck in my head. One of my heroes growing up was Douglas Bader, and there is an obvious link in both tales. I lent the book several times, and eventually misplaced it. Craving a re-read, I was sorry to find it out of print, only to find that Paul Pritchard was crowd-funding a re-print. The synchronicity meant I now own this reprinted version.
Essentially, trying to climb a sea stack in Tasmania, Paul, a well known British climber suffered a huge head trauma. This book charts the first year of his recovery. What struck me on re-reading is how lucid and crisp with technical medical terms he is. Paul's story remains as memorable as before, and it is as shot through with self-depecrating humour as I remember. A remarkable book by a remarkable man.
