Michael Rosen was dangerously ill from COVID at the beginning of 2020 and as doctors told him, if he hadn't received treatment, he would have 'gone'. While he was in hospital, 42% of the patients on his intensive care ward died. He spent three months in hospital, of which nearly seven weeks were in an induced coma, followed by several weeks recovering in an ordinary ward and then in a Rehabilitation Hospital. He couldn't walk and his memory was damaged. Three years later his hearing and eyesight are still badly affected. This collection records his bewilderment with what's happened, and shares his thoughts about the politics of the pandemic - the 'crazed incompetence' of the Tory government and the war against the 'Oldies' that led to over 200,000 dead in the UK.
