The Colour of Life by Geoff Cronin

colour of life

Apart from writing books, Geoff Cronin also contributed to the blog in the last three years. He was delighted to share a selection of his stories from his three books from time to time and during the recent Classical Music series on Luciano Pavarotti, he suggested that I might use this story about the great tenor and his most ardent fan.

I am sure that he will be delighted that his storytelling continues with the serialisation of his books.
