Laurie Brady / Kissing the Cheek of Time

  • Laurie Brady / Kissing the Cheek of Time
This short novel is both a love story, and a story about life and death, age and youth, and innocence and experience. Peter Allthorpe, at the age of sixty-seven, is confronted with the likelihood of his imminent death from terminal cancer. As he copes with this reality and its medical treatment, and his own place in ‘the scheme of things’, he searches for what he calls ‘a lucid life’ and a ‘quiet completeness’, one he ultimately finds through his loving family.
Laurie Brady is a poet, having six published collections, and a writer of short stories, having three published collections. He has spent his life in teaching and teacher education, retiring as professor of education at the University of Technology, Sydney. Kissing the Cheek of Time is his third novella.
