Aged 29, Lu Spinney’s son Miles suffered a devastating head injury and was left in a coma. With unflinching honesty, Lu Spinney has written a passionate, urgent account of the years following her son Miles’s accident, revealing his existence imprisoned in a limbo of fluctuating consciousness, at times agonizingly aware of his predicament.
With unfailing honesty and courageous prose, Lu Spinney’s memoir explores the very nature of self and the anguish of witnessing Miles’s suffering as she and her family come to realise that, although he has been saved from death, he has not been brought back to a meaningful life.
