In 1952 three things happened to Proctor ‘Push’ Pulman: he narrowly missed out on qualifying to row in the Olympics; he married Diana. Six weeks later he contracted polio.

This is his story. Push the athlete paralysed by polio and tuberculosis. The engineer who found a solution whatever the problem. Push the family man: physically strong and emotionally resilient.

Sarah Passingham’s intimate memoir brings her father to life. She explores the devastation of polio until vaccinations were developed in the 1950s. Sarah Passingham is a master storyteller, bringing scenes alive in vivid detail.
