“On Wednesday 13 June 1979, three months after my 15th birthday, I waited until dad drove mum into Cardiff for her night-shift as a Staff Nurse then went into the kitchen and stole the Paracetamol tablets she stored under the sink. After taking them I fell asleep on the sofa in my bedroom. I woke up suddenly at about 2am and proceeded to vomit for the next six hours, which is probably why I am still alive today. I see A VOICE COMING FROM THEN as the note that at the time I didn’t understand myself enough to write.”
“… a wonderful mix of truth, tragedy, and triumph. Life is terrible and also it is beautiful. A Voice Coming From Then is also a voice for now, in this sense, and I highly recommend it.” – Buzz Magazine.
