George Hall is an unobtrusive man. A little distant, perhaps, a little cautious, not quite at ease with the emotional demands of fatherhood or of manly bonhomie. "The secret of contentment, George felt, lay in ignoring many things completely." Some things in life can't be ignored, however: his tempestuous daughter Katie's deeply inappropriate boyfriend Ray, for instance, or the sudden appearance of a red circular rash on his hip

Polar bears by Mark Haddon( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

'Polar Bears', first performed at the Donmar Warehouse in 2010, is a captivating play exploring non-linear structures, philosophy and love. It follows the relationship between Kay - who has bipolar disorder - her family and her philosopher husband John. Through a discontinuous series of scenes, we see the relationship between Kay and John develop and founder; she becomes lost to another world, a world in which John does not belong. Balancing humour with extraordinary pathos, this is a story of Nietzsche, Jesus, children's books about monsters, and the pain of loving someone you can never really know. Polar Bears is thought-provoking and intelligent, and refuses to offer any easy answers about those involved in mental instability
Footprints on the moon by Mark Haddon( Recording )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Years ago, a little boy gazed at the moon, dizzy with the thought that he was looking at a world 200,000 miles away. As he read atlases and library books and kept clippings on astronauts orbiting the moon, he hoped and hoped that they would find a way to land there. And one extraordinary day they did, captured on his flickery TV, like giants bouncing in slow motion. When the boy fell asleep, he dreamed that he walked with them too. In this lyrical, transporting tale, Mark Haddon, the boy in the story, conveys the thrill of one moment in history through a child's eyes
