Tom’s trilogy of novels, published during 2019-20, consists of: ‘Into Full Sunlight,’ ‘Wide Illumination’ and ‘Harvest the Light.’ The narrative is set in the 1960s and 70s, and charts the experiences of a young man who benefits from the post-war educational opportunities then available, and from the social mobility which they make possible. However, his path has many twists and turns,and he finds that complexities and problems are inescapable.
