A quick post to mark a milestone in my academic road. Today I submitted my Ph.D. thesis to the University of Sussex entitled "Hostility or Tolerance? Philosophy, polyphony and the works of Thomas Pynchon". The project has taken me 2 years and 8 months to date.
On the day that the thesis went off to the printer, however, my grandfather, John Arthur William Gray, sadly passed away at age 92. I managed to retrieve the document from the printer before it was printed and insert a dedication, which I'd like to repeat here for posterity:
In memory of my grandfather, John Gray
10/02/1920 – 14/06/2012
