Abstract or Description
Introduction to the memoir Until Further Notice, I am Alive, by Tom Lubbock, art critic of the Independent.
The work is a record of two years following diagnosis of a brain tumour. It is a meditation on language and mortality and was published by Granta in 2012 to great acclaim.
I wrote the 2200 word introduction, giving the text the contextual framework of an experience both of us lived through.
