  1. About the book

Confessions of an Asthmatic critic

A personal tale of literature and life and the indefinable nature of what separates them; of childhood and fear of the dark and the birth of a reader; of the impulse to write; of binding words, words that burn; of criticism and old-fashioned terms such as responsibility, morality and truth; of love, friendship and other experiences; of departures, new beginnings and the importance of being able to breathe.
