Melanie Reid

LIVING LIFE IN THE SLOW LANE

Times columnist Melanie Reid was a keen horsewoman before breaking her neck in a fall 9 years ago. In The World I Fell Out Of, she details, with often mordant wit, her experiences in a spinal unit, and the years beyond as she came to terms with being tetraplegic and travelling in a wheelchair. Her Spinal Column appears every Saturday.
