An Interrupted Life

Ted SimonFor some time now 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.

The job is done now, the book has been published, and I’ve changed the title too. Here it is, and the little chap in the middle is me, of course, at the age of five.

Don't Boil The Canary

I have left the first two chapters on this site to give you a taste of what is to come, and I have left the last one to show you how it ends.

The book covers the forty-two years of my life before I made the decision to ride a Triumph motorcycle around the world in 1973. The book I wrote about that journey is well known, so there is no need to write another about those years.

You can order the book here and I’ll happily sign and dedicate it to whomever you choose.

[Just a word about why the price is in dollars, even though I live in France and will send the book from here. Because my tiny publishing house, which only publishes my own books, is still located in California, it makes more sense for all the business to flow through America. Paypal will automatically convert the dollar price into your currency when you press the button.]
