A Rock & Roll Doctor's Tale
Stephen John Hartley
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Using the annual cycle of a hillside allotment as a framework, Stephen John Hartley’s startlingly direct narrative tells his incredible story: engineer; guitarist in seminal punk band NOTSENSIBLES; busker; letterpress and woodblock printer; late medical school entrant; A&E consultant; NHS whistleblower; restorer of old vehicles; builder of valve amplifiers; DIY record label aspirant.
Beautifully illustrated by the author, with over 30 woodcuts and line drawings, the book is imbued with a DIY ethos, exploring how much we can do for ourselves without relying on the establishment - localisation vs globalisation.
