“Change and decay all around I see”. At such times during history, and arguably the world today – overshadowed by Covid 19, coruscating politics, a trashed environment, vitiated social media, rioting, hunger, poverty and collapsing economies – can there be books and writers that bring light and light relief? What perspective and outlook do those writers bring to life and writing, who can look beyond the darknesses of the human condition or tackle it with humour and optimism?
