Shadows in Wonderland by Colin Ludlow
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


When television producer Colin Ludlow was admitted to hospital for an operation, he expected to be home in ten days. In the event, he ended up staying for five months, nearly died on several occasions, contracted MRSA, and was still recovering from his experiences more than three years later.In "Shadows in Wonderland" he tells his story, and takes a fascinating philosophical journey through chronic illness as he explores its wider significance. The book is a moving account of how the author pieced together the shattered fragments of his life and sought to make sense of them again. It is the record of a quest - which we all face - for health and wholeness in a fractured, disjointed world.
