As I get weaker, less a part of this world, or less a part of what I love, less a part of my family's life, I can perceive its edges with fantastic clarity. I can lie against it, lolling my arm over the edge, running my fingers around the rim. And this is where I am. In 2018, Joe Hammond wrote a piece for the Guardian about the 33 birthday cards he was writing for his two sons. It was shared by thousands. In this book he tells the story behind that piece, about the experience of living with - and dying of - motor neurone disease (ALS).
