In the year before his 30th birthday, Miles had everything to live for - brilliant, athletic, beautiful and loved, his life was a success story that had only just begun. But a sudden and disastrous snowboarding accident changed everything; Miles was left in a coma, semi-conscious but unable to move or speak. This stunningly moving memoir by Miles' mother, Lu, is about love. The fathomless love for one's children, and the unbearable agony when you come to realize that sometimes this is not enough. With painstaking honesty, Lu explores the nature of self when all means of communication are lost, the unbearable grief when your loved one remains alive but profoundly incapacitated, and the enormous impact on a family of caring for a profoundly damaged and once-brilliant young man. Beyond the High Blue Air also examines the slow-dawning recognition of what life had become for Miles, as his family falteringly comes to the realisation that they will have to let him go.
