'The first eighteen years of my life', writes Peter Marshall, 'were normal: eighteen years of physical activity and independence. Poliomyelitis reversed this. After the tumult of the illness departed and I realised my condition of almost complete paralysis was incurable, the mind became more important than the body.'

He wrote only three books in his life. His first was an autobiography, Two Lives (before and after polio), and was awarded the John Llewellyn Rhys Memorial Prize in 1963. His second, The Raging Moon, was a moving novel about the love of two cripples. The third one, Excluded From The Cemetery, was a masterpiece of his short life.
