Key Themes: fiction, drama, retirement


I like to think of the Pearl Divers Saliva as a fairly light piece of writing albeit that it deals with some fairly serious issues. It is primarily a work of fiction and follows the events in the life of Bill Evans as he takes early retirement. The characters in the story are entirely fictional, that having been said I have drawn heavily on the mental health service and its users to produce a piece of social drama.
