JIGSAW, Neil’s third book, represents a poetic sharing by the author. Selections are from decades of piecing together his own puzzle. The book is offered to the reader in a colourful variation of poetic styles as the author describes a world of breakdown and recovery, making the reading experience in human terms, saving the reader from having to wade through psychological and medical terminology.
