No Man An Island: A Biography of Peter Spencer
No Man An Island: A Biography of Peter Spencer
Waugh, Eileen
Written with great insight, this unusual biography describes how, as a war-time pilot, Peter Spencer lost the use of both arms in a cruelly ironic accident. It tells how he pulled himself back from death after a prediction of his inability to survive; how he fought to rebuild his life and prove that a man, considered a finished human being, could ultimately achieve fufilment and, through it all, preserve a remarkable sense of humour.
