An Interrupted Life

Ted SimonDuring the past year I’ve been working on an autobiography. I’m doing it mainly for the sake of my descendants who, like most young people, don’t think of asking questions until it’s too late, partly because they’re too busy, partly for fear of being bored, but also I think for fear of finding it rather embarrassing.

However, being a writer by profession, I can’t do this job without thinking of it as a book, and books need readers. Unfortunately, after a good start the work has slowed up significantly and I am not at all sure when it might be finished. So I thought, well, I have thirty thousand words that various people have pronounced good, so why not cast my bread upon the waters, follow the example of writers more famous than me, and serialise it in weekly chapters.

So far the response has been very encouraging, so I am continuing as best I can. I hope you will let me know if you enjoy it. One day, perhaps, it will be a real book.

Thank you.
