“I have what is called locked-in syndrome.
Yes ... Read that again ... Locked. In. Syndrome.
The trouble is that I’m the only person to have figured this out.”
Meet Dave. Dave is an eighteen-year-old blind, quadriplegic victim of medical negligence. He is highly intelligent, has an almost photographic memory, and is capable of absorbing knowledge at a phenomenal rate. Dave’s world revolves around the antics of his dysfunctional, avaricious, unloving family and everything he learns from BBC Radio 4 which provides a link to an outside world he knows he will never belong to. Life is bleak for Dave.
Until he meets the one person who may be able to save him.
“Just when I’d thought things had got as bad as they could get, they got even worse. There’s a singer called Morrissey who writes songs about stuff like this, and even he would struggle to make this sound as miserable as it is.”
