Quick overview In his latest collection, the acclaimed author and broadcaster John Quinn explores the perennial theme of commencement through encounters with an array of intriguing people. Maeve Binchy shares a typically warm and good-humoured account of a first date and later, we hear from the writer and social philosopher, Charles Handy, of a profound life-changing experience. Henry Ford’s dream of ‘a motor-car for the great multitude’ and Martin Luther King’s dream of freedom and justice for his people are pondered, as the reader is taken on a journey of threshold moments that invigorate and inspire.
