A Writer Collapses—As He Recovers, His Dispatches Captivate Readers

From a New York Times story by Sarah Lyall headlined “A Writer Collapses. As He Recovers, His Dispatches Captivate Readers”:

Just after Christmas, the writer Hanif Kureishi was taking a long walk in Rome, where he and his wife, Isabella D’Amico, were spending the holiday, when he suddenly collapsed onto the sidewalk. It is unclear why — perhaps he fainted, said his son Carlo Kureishi, or perhaps he suffered an epileptic fit — but he fell awkwardly, twisting his neck and grievously injuring the top of his spine.
