What is Through Another Lens?
Update: Through Another Lens is aimed at being a magazine style site with a bit of everything but geared towards book reviews and articles themed around books and authors. More general and news orientated posts will appear here also. I am also working on a new site which is for my own writings, musings etc but more of that when it’s ready for public viewing!
Me: Hi! I’m Norman, 49 year old Christian man from Glasgow. I was diagnosed several years ago as on the Adult Autism Spectrum. I had a breakdown many years ago and plunged into the terrifying world of depression. I survived…I know…yay me! I have learned/am learning, to live with anxiety and to finally allow myself to be myself. I love escaping into the world of literature and have several projects ‘in process’ to try to write my own books, don’t we all! I’m a slow reader but trying to develop a faster reading style. While I’ll read most genres I’m particularly interested in books with a spiritual or metaphysical edge…although technically that could be any book. Oh…and I only drink decaf coffee. Yeh I know it’s not ‘proper’ coffee but in the interests of actually getting any sleep at night this insomniac avoids caffeine like the plague.
TAL’s (and my own) interests:
I read across genres having no specific favourite. I cover crime, thriller, general fiction, humour, science fiction, fantasy, horror (okay scary but I have my limits) and (auto)biography. I also like books across genres which have a spiritual edge and deal with questions of morality…although you could argue that covers all books! I also love reading theology and philosophy.
If you have any suggestions (helpful suggestions!) about Through Another Lens then I’d be delighted to hear from you.
Thanks for reading.
