Category: General Biography
'If you are hungry for truth and beauty, read this book' Roisin Ingle, The Irish Times 'A demonstration of a will to live that is breathtaking ... a work of documentary poetry ... an extraordinary read' The Herald 'An unforgettable read about what it means to be alive' Woman's Way 'The world "inspirational" is over-used, but if ever a book deserved this epithet, this is it' Sunday Independent 'Sparsely and beautifully written .. the human spirit and will to live shines out of these pages' Irish Independent A No.1 bestseller, It's Not Yet Dark is an unforgettable book about relationships and family, about what connects and separates us as people and, ultimately, about what it means to be alive. In 2008, Simon Fitzmaurice was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease (mnd). He was given four years to live. In 2010, in a state of lung-function collapse, Simon knew with crystal clarity that now was not his time to die. Against all prevailing medical opinion, he chose to ventilate in order to stay alive. Here, the young filmmaker, a husband and father of five small children draws us deeply into his inner world. Written using an eye-gaze computer and told in simply expressed and beautifully stark prose, the result is an astonishing journey into a life which, though brutally compromised, is lived more fully and in the moment than most, revealing at its core the power of love its most potent.
