When TV producer Clin Ludlow is admitted to hospital for an operation, he expects to be home in 10 days. In the event he ends up staying for five months, nearly dying on several occasions, and contracting MRSA. More than nine years later he is still recovering from his experiences. In Shadows in Wonderland he tells his story, and takes a fascinating journey through chronic illness as he explores its wider significance. The book is a moving account — a poetic, personal reflection — of how the author pieced together the shattered fragments of his life and sought to make sense of them again.
