My Life, My Hurdles

A Graphic Memoir by Michael Parker

Get over yourself. A catch phrase that couldn’t be more apt for an Olympic hurdler (with issues).  

These have been addressed and, to some extent, resolved in writing this memoir- Michael Parker’s life’s difficulties from childhood and ultimate success as an adult.  From being sent to boarding school on his fifth birthday, to a career at Saatchi, to helping send the first Briton into space, this is the story of the hurdles experienced, from World War 2 till world pandemic now. 

The witty, poignant, colourful illustrations throughout are by Cecily Salt. She lends her energetic pencil power to bringing these recollections to life in an engaging style.

The book is £15 and is available from Brown Dog Books with quick dispatch. All proceeds go to charity.
