The Experience of Having been Seriously Ill with Covid

There is a tender, sad, moving, funny article in the Guardian today, from Michael Rosen who is still only slowly recovering from having been on a ventilator nearly a year ago. His new book is called “Many Different Kinds of Love: Life, Death, and the NHS”

From his chapter on Rehab, this amused …

“They’ve been worried about my low blood pressure but they’ve brought me the Daily Mail so it’ll be fine in just a moment.”


I followed his illness and recovery as he always struck me as a thoroughly nice man, as well as writing interesting books for kids.

His “who are refugees and migrants” which helps kids understand this issue I think is great.


That’s a very moving article - he definitely has a way with words ! :wink:
