Opening up a (Delightful) "Can of Worms"
Publishers The Threadbone Press, in conjunction with the Thrupiece Foundation and the RSCBE is soon to publish Volume 8 of the Thrupiece Diaries - the latest instalment in what is proving to be one of the publishing events of the decade. "A Can of Worms" covers the period November 2003 - January 2004: in retrospect one of the most significant in the Professor's life.
Here, in the pithy prose style to which we have become accustomed we meet many of those close to the Professor (including for the first time a mysterious S) and witness first hand his struggles - ethical, scientific and physical - with the challenges later life threw his way. At once insightful and moving "A Can of Worms" will be warmly welcomed by those who have read the previous volumes in this epic series and will win many new readers for the man increasingly recognised "as the major diarist of our era".
Much of Professor Thrupiece's life will always remain a mystery not least because a number of the operations in which he was involved remain subject to the diverse Official Secrets Acts pertaining in several major jurisdictions. Equally aspects of his private life remain closely guarded by extant family members who are rightly protective of his reputation. The storm surrounding the recent publication of "Scene of the Crime" by one-time friend and alleged late-life companion Shelley-Lulette Sizemore is evidence of just how deeply feelings run amongst the Professor's admirers and inner circle, so that any insights to be gleaned from the Professor's own "pen" will be welcomed by all with an interest in his character and work.
Carefully edited by Mrs Edna Whisky McNightly under the General Editorship of Audrey Badminton-Court and with a Foreword by Professor Simon Nosebag-Malapense, the volume will be published on 20th May 2017.
