For almost fifty years, Michael Harding has been crafting words in a bid to express himself and to explore truths about the human condition. But even still he found himself unable to say certain things he really wanted to. Then, while in recovery from surgery, he travelled to a cottage on the Atlantic coast and thought again about life and the people who had profoundly affected him over the years: mentors, loves and old friends. There, at the ocean, he wrote letters with an intimacy not previously risked. Letters that would never be posted but that appear now in ‘All the Things Left Unsaid’ – a vulnerable and beautifully wrought collection of insights into life, death, friendship and love.
