Just a short story published in the FT. Concerning Jason Taylor's family. Well done.

"Black Swan Green" is my favourite Mitchell's novel and this short story is fast forward in the world of its main protagonist Jason Taylor though Jason is not that Taylor from the title.
I don't really have some opinion about this one. Oh it's cute that Jason became speech therapist (LOL!).
