When I wrote Disturbance in 2004 here in Liverpool I had just finishedreading a short novel but which was to impact upon me over the followingyears in a way no other novel book or play has ever done And having read widely I do not write that lightlyIt came without warning The words resonated they were real and left mereeling That book Pebble in a Pool by William Taylor was published in theUSA and the UK but not in fact in his home country because to use Will swords to me he just did not want to go through a load of flak againSmall communities do have a way of making life hell for those living within for those who do not live according to the so called accepted social norm which I guess is why I love the freedom of the City the night life the arts music science and coffee houses ironically the peace and uiet the small towns don t give to those who do not follow the same stepWill s book did nothing to undermine my faith it made it real andpractical And it did what I love to do make bums on pews feeluncomfortable when being presented with home truths and echoing what thatGreat Man said two millennia ago in Jerusalem All you do is to take MyWord which is designed to make life easier for My people and make it into a burdenThere followed a stinging series of rebukes that left His listeners reeling and very determined to be rid of Him Their temporary loss of course humankind s Eternal Salvation A hope fulfilled A guarantee deliveredI thoroughly commend the works of William Taylor and especially to parents who are wondering how to deal with the challenges of adolescence When two friends read the book last year Steve a New Zealander also on North Island secretly made contact with William and a rather special present arrived in time for Christmas the author s signed copy to meI must admit I was totally speechless seriously so and it now sits veryproudly on the coffee table next to the model of the Spitfire in my lounge I remember at the time just gazing out to sea past the Lighthouse on the Fort Perch Rock and being nonplussed finally deciding that a coffee might not be amiss I remember hearing in the ear of my mind that absolutely beautifulNew Zealand chuckle that always made the day rightThank you William for all you ve done for me and for all of us throughout the English Speaking Peoples And if fills me with joy to know that your lifetime s works now stand translated in the other great languages too truly global Truly you have set your sails and crossed every ocean and strait the world over Thank youYou have the ear of the people and above all you have the attention of the little ones and those people are the most important of all as indeed He has taught usDisturbanceDedicatedto thelife and worksofWilliam Taylor ONZM4A single entrya gentle plop What was that Nothing The plop gives birtha ring appearsprocreatesand widensSoon the ringsspread evenlya perfectcircumferenceoverriding wavesand washedon the shores of lifeA microcosm ofnuclear proportionsometimes benignbut often malignantA little localdisturbanceTwo lives brought togetherIan Bradley Marshall

This was ok well written but a bit unrealistic Lots of stereotypes particularly the evil abusive bible thumpin wife thumpin pastor a figure that always seems to crop up in this sort of book and the fat snivelling bully named Dickensian ly enough Snout Hogg Anyway the story goes that a girl at Paul s school dies in a car accident and there s a big hullabuloo about it school closed for her funeral etc and then a bit later another student Spike gets beaten to death in an alleyway but because he s gay the school hushes it all up and just gives him a MENTION at a school assembly The principal actually WARNS the kids that this sort of thing can happen to people who choose certain lifestyles this is where it starts getting unrealistic I should add that this is set in 2010 not 1950 Anyway ol Paul feels sorry for Spike he claims he doesn t know why and stands up and gives a speech about how his death was a terrible thing and everyone will miss him etc etc Anyway Then he goes home and SECONDS AFTER STEPPING THROUGH THE DOOR his father the evil pastor beats him to a pulp whilst screaming abuse and disowning him for being gay Wait what I know Somehow everyone seemed to understand his speech to mean I feel sorry for Spike therefore I am also gay They were totally right but I would not have made that connection Anyway so then Paul runs away and luckily happens to fall into the hands of an older but not too much older nice kind lovely man called Steve who lives in a nice little mountain shack away from everyone else Steve looks after him and lets him stay for free and cooks him nice meals and tells him it s ok son I m sure Jesus loves you even if you re gay which seems to comfort him Fortuitously but not unexpectedly for me Steve also turns out to be gay so after the dramatic reveal he and Paul end up living together happily as a couple for the rest of their days The author makes a bit of a point of the fact that Paul turns 18 in the course of the story NO underage shenanegins thank you The only other conflict for the rest of the story is Paul s angst because he wishes he could come out openly but Steve advises him not to because the community isn t ready for it It was all a bit too convenient and twee just sounded like wish fulfillment really
