I have just finished listening to a radio adaptation of this work which is described as follows An innovative examination of the nature of reality in the 21st century by award winning author Laurence Scott part personal memoir part philosophical exploration Read by Stephen ManganWhen he was in his early 30s Laurence Scott s parents died soon after one another and he found his whole world altered beyond recognition He says Death runs like radioactive iodine through your sense of reality allowing this reality to be looked at in high contrast its structures glowing It has a way of making things very true but also somehow less real I found this account mesmerising thought provoking and moving I wonder though whether it is meaningful to readerslisteners who have suffered the death of a parent or close member of the family Laurence Scott absolutely nails the way such loss affects and continues to affect one s life Aside from the devastation which may be immediate or delayed he describes how subtle changes occur and repeat and moves into his theory of the altered perception of reality with fascinating candourI will probably purchase the book so that I can read the full version An outstanding work and I award a well deserved five stars
