“The book is MAGNIFICENT. I’m devouring it. What a life. What a creative output and innovative invention. I’m in awe. I must admit that I had not realised the Thurrock bit of your journey, which was where I encountered you, was such a minute part of the magical journey. For me, it was a BIG THING. That inflatable structure you put up at our various events and which you eventually left us with, was a truly memorable time. I don’t know if you knew this, but I did a theatrical production inside that structure as part of my MA year. Fabulous book. Great body of work. Be loud and be proud!” Dr Jeff Merrifield, Author & Community Artist

This book revives the memory of a widely forgotten-about time and the validity of the work done during those early years by Terry and his contemporaries. It also tells the story of how he survived, continuing with his socially committed work and never ceasing to seek out new creative languages.” – Editor David Townsend Jones, Adastra Publishing.
