Aitken Alexander Isolation Series: There Is Always An After

My agents, Aitken Alexander Associates asked me to write a piece for their Isolation Series inspired by the experience of lockdown.

When the request came I was in lockdown in Cromarty, North East Scotland, 170 miles from my home in Edinburgh.

On my daily walks I came across the local WW1 memorial and I was struck by some of the parallels between that disaster and the one we face today – not least the question of what happens after, once the end has come.
