‘When you’re young your opponent is the future. But when you reach middle age, everything flips, and now you have a new opponent – the Past.’
William wakes up one morning, middle aged and cranky. He’s alone, sleeping on a mattress in his office and bits of him are falling apart.
As his mind wonders from bookshelves, blood pressure and the D day landing, to the death of love and birth of his son, he asks himself: where did it go wrong and is there time to fix it?
