Anakana Schofield – Author of Martin John and Malarky

Himpatience

I’ve finished Mr Parks impatience memoir (Teach us to sit still) and have managed to miss the Leopardi reference in it, which a very good source told me was in there. The descriptions of the meditation retreats did me in, which given the starting point of the memoir is a man being done in by pain, seems form & content & reader appropriate.

I recommend Mr P’s memoir to anyone with or without a prostate, anyone with or without a pain someplace and certainly to those who have no intention of ever going on a meditation retreat (you may find yourself maintaining that position)  and finally for those who have realized that every book is improved by a reference to Robert Walser. This one has multiples. Much insight to be gained from reading this book.
