Hal  Lever  shouldn’t  be  alive  today.

After  a  devastating  car  accident  in  1970  he  was  in  a  coma  for  twenty  days.  When   he  regained  consciousness  he  was  unable  to  talk,  walk  or  use  his  hands  and  he   had  completely  lost  his  memory.  Far  from  being  afraid  to  speak  to  anyone,  now   you  can’t  shut  him  up!

He  spent  nine  months  initially  recovering  from  his  injuries,  including  seven   months  in  Winwick  Psychiatric  Hospital  because  there  was  nowhere  else  for  him   to  recover  –  he  needed  100%  rest.       When  at  last  he  was  discharged  he  was  stigmatised,  faced  prejudice  and  was   excluded  from  society  in  many  ways  simply  because  of  his  slurred  speech.

Yet  here  he  is  42  years  later  talking  about  his  experience.  He  has  written  an   autobiography,  which  sold  over  11,800  copies,  he  won  Best  Animated  Short  Film   at  the  Sefton  Film  festival  2005  and  has  travelled  extensively  around  the  world.       In  a  moving,  original  and  often  amusing
