The Laughing Skull


Arteri Malaysia has curated a series of writeups entitled Thoughts On Darkness. You can read my contribution here. I resisted the initial urge to write a brooding or thoughtful piece on the nature of darkness and went for a literary slant instead. The source of inspiration for this piece came from Laurence Sterne's bawdy tale, The Life And Opinions Of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman. Have you seen the movie, by the way? Great stuff. Some reviewer said it was, curiously, the most successful adaptation of a book but one that didn't resemble the book at all, if you can get your head around that.
