Injury time: a memoir
D.J. Enright died soon after putting the finishing touches on this memoir and commonplace book in which he muses upon his own condition and that of the world he knows he is leaving. With his legendary humanity and wit, he contemplates literature, manners, morals, people and especially the English language in all its glories and eccentricities. Among much else, he also recorded his battle against cancer, his relations with computers, charities, classified advertisements, and the National Health Service.
