The Life and Times of 'Johnny One Punch' DaviesAfter enjoying an idyllic life on a hillside farm in South Wales until he was five, John Davies' life changed dramatically when his ten year old sister Heather suffered a fatal accident and the farm was sold and the family moved away. Brutalised by his father and bullied at school, he became afraid of 'his own shadow' until his uncle gave him a punch ball for his ninth birthday and discovered he had a rare talent. Unfortunately he abused it and spent over eight years in prison because of his extreme violence, before being sent to a psychiatric prison at the age of 45. Missing the opportunity to become a world champion, he became one of Wales' finest boxing coaches and trained his son to become a world-class fighter.Married for the fourth time at 65 to a girl half his age, he beat angina and fathered a son at 68. Arrested for growing millions of pounds worth of cannabis at 69, he has written his life story to leave a record for his son in case he is incarcerated.
Readers would perhaps be justified in thinking that Slings and Arrows, the fourth book in the Hindsights series, should be given a warning text regarding its emotionally wrenching content. This is that warning. Having overcome the many obstacles to settling down in Sweden, Stan and Jeanette achieve (at least temporarily) the free and simple life they’d been seeking. Stan enters the most intensive and productive period in his painting, by far, with Jeanette’s strong moral support and urging. But once again, external circumstances threaten their equilibrium: Stan’s dad dies suddenly and Stan’s draft orders are cancelled, almost simultaneously; their first trip back to the US a year later confirms their conviction that Sweden is their new home; just months later, Jeanette’s dad’s death and horrifying funeral confirm their rejection of religion, but seem to launch Jeanette’s growing obsession with death; and they are forced to find new living quarters. An exciting project to turn a derelict building into a home with great potential consumes most of their time and resources for two years, during which Stan has no time to paint and Jeanette’s condition worsens, perceptibly only through hindsight. With the end of the enormous restoration project in sight, Jeanette’s unforeseen suicide destroys every trace of Stan’s hope and meaning.
Suffering the Slings and Arrows of Outrageous Fortune
The book Suffering the Slings and Arrows Of Outrageous Fortune: International Perspectives on Stress, Laughter and Depression highlights topics covered at an inaugural inter-disciplinary conference Making Sense of Stress Humour and Healing held in Budapest in May 2005. The chapters provide a truly international and inter-disciplinary perspective on the subject. Contributors to this volume come not only from a wide variety of disciplines and backgrounds but also from many parts of the globe. They speak of universal truths and of site-specific concerns. They do not all speak with one voice and some of their points diverge one from the other but each sheds their own light on the topics, allowing readers to form a richer picture of the issues than might otherwise be possible.

In so doing, I hope that after reading the events of the first, your mind will be open to the possibility of the truth of the second. Whatever you believe in this world, I’m sure that by the time you’ve read to the end of both tales, you will never think the same again.
