Daniel Whelan was born in Cheshire, but grew up in North Wales. He left for London in 2000 to study for a degree in acting. His adaptation of Richard Adams's Watership Down premiered at The Riverside Studios and was acclaimed by Mr Adams as one of the best he'd read. His next play, A Harlot's Progress, inspired by the etchings of Hogarth, was well received by TimeOut. Alas, Mr Hogarth was too dead to give his opinion. "
"The Box of Demons, Daniel's debut novel, was winner of the Write Now! Prize.

From Sylvia #Plath Plath's Cambridge notes, published in Johnny Panic and the Bible of Dreams: "We must be at a low ebb when we are this far into the black: that everyone else, merely because they are 'other', is invulnerable. That is a damn lie."

I'm reading Johnny Panic and the Bible of Dreams by Sylvia #Plath for the first time.
Just came across some notes I made last time I read it.
DO NOT REMEMBER EVER OPENING THIS BOOK BEFORE.
