In a novel that is at once intense, beautiful, and fablelike, Lloyd Jones weaves a transcendent story that celebrates the resilience of the human spirit and the power of narrative to transform our lives. On a copper-rich tropical island shattered by war, where the teachers have fled with most everyone else, only one white man chooses to stay behind: the eccentric Mr. Watts, object of much curiosity and scorn, who sweeps out the ruined schoolhouse and begins to read to the children each day from Charles Dickens’s classic Great Expectations. So begins this rare, original story about the abiding strength that imagination, once ignited, can provide. As artillery echoes in the mountains, thirteen-year-old Matilda and her peers are riveted by the adventures of a young orphan named Pip in a city called London, a city whose contours soon become more real than their own blighted landscape. As Mr. Watts says, “A person entranced by a book simply forgets to breathe.” Soon come the rest of the villagers, initially threatened, finally inspired to share tales of their own that bring alive the rich mythology of their past. But in a ravaged place where even children are forced to live by their wits and daily survival is the only objective, imagination can be a dangerous thing. From the Hardcover edition.

In February 2012 the Health Committee undertook an inquiry into 'PIP Breast implants and regulation of cosmetic interventions' (HC 1816, 16th report session 2010-12, ISBN 9780215043474). The Government response to that report (Cm. 8351, ISBN 9780101835121) is not commented upon here. This report follows on from the earlier conclusion that all possible evidence, including patient-reported experiences, must be gathered and analysed in order to inform the policy response to the issue. The timescale of the earlier inquiry did not allow evidence to be taken directly from those women affected. The Committee therefore established a web forum where women with PIP implants could explain how they had learned about the issues; what they had been told about their implants when they were provided; their experiences with their private providers once they had discovered they had PIP implants; and the support they received privately or from the NHS in having the implants removed or replaced. The web forum was open for comments during May 2012. By the time the forum closed to new comments on 31 may 2012, 194 women had registered with the forum and left 279 posts. By 24 June 2012 the forum had received over 4, 230 page views. This report summarises the responses received on the forum.
