My husband Andrew, who began this blog in October 2007, died peacefully on September 3rd 2012, at the age of 83, after long and well-controlled illness culminating in a sudden, brief decline. He worked on his autobiography for years but never completed it. Instead he left behind various pieces of life writing which would have formed part of it. I will gradually include this material here, giving the dates on which the pieces were written. I'll also add some of my own reminiscences and items of information I have about him. At some point this blog will become an archive, without further additions. — Rosemary Nissen-Wade

Episodes in the Story of Andrew's Life

Andrew has been dead just over two years. I have begun going through his notebooks to select pieces of writing to include here, as an episodic version of the autobiography he always meant to write. I won't even attempt to post things in chronological order, but treat them as self-contained stories which can stand alone and/or enhance each other.

This will not be the version Andrew would have produced if he'd been able to edit and revise. Luckily he was a naturally good writer, so it will be readable anyway. I will do only minimal editing where absolutely necessary. I will add notes at times.

I trust you will find the posts interesting.
