Though the focus is on one man, Martin, the narrative also makes comment on the care system, attitudes to mental illness, and on the kindness of strangers.
Figura's story is of an emotional journey and is a very touching story. It’s extremely well told, and nicely paced. Though the death of his mother was tragic, Figura is able to highlight the positives as well as the negatives in his life. In the telling of his life story, there’s lots of humour among the tears.
