Life With Arfur

by: David W Robinson

A ‘True Cats’ Non-Fiction Book

How do you cope when you’re faced with a life of constant, unrelenting pain? Sometimes mild, sometimes severe, but always there, nagging at you, driving you to distraction in the search for relief.

You can cry. You can complain. You can fight or you can give in and allow it to dominate you.

Life With Arfur is an autobiographical account of one man’s battle with osteoarthritis. A progressively degenerative disease, arthritis is no laughing matter, but humour is precisely the medicine David Robinson uses in his daily battle with Arfur.

With knees that click like castanets, and fingers losing their Yorkshire-born grip on a five-pound note, he takes us through the early days of a twinging knee through the full-blooded agony of an arthritic flare-up to the final acceptance that his life is a Life With Arfur.

 David Robinson is a Yorkshireman taking his life in his hands by living amongst Lancastrians on the outskirts of Manchester. Driven by a huge, cynical sense of humour, he’s been a writer for over thirty years having begun with magazine articles before moving on to novels and TV scripts.He has little to do with his life other than write, as a consequence of which his output is prodigious. Thankfully most of it is never seen by the great reading public of the world.He has worked closely with Crooked Cat Books since 2012, when The Filey Connection, the very first Sanford 3rd Age Club Mystery, was published. There are now 14 STAC Mysteries with more to come in the near future.Describing himself as the Doyen of Domestic Disasters he can be found blogging at www.dwrob.com and he appears frequently on video (written, produced and starring himself) dispensing his mocking humour at www.youtube.com/user/Dwrob96/videos
