In 2008, Tom Lubbock was diagnosed with a brain tumour, and told he had only one or two years to live. In this remarkable record of those years, lived out in three-month intervals between scans, he examines the question of how to live with death in sight. Sadly but understandable, all the book is mainly about the disease, the doctors, the symptoms, etc. Very little is mentioned about his family and how he actually feels in terms of emotions.

It is an endlessly lively and surprising book. All we see of his family is his little son and his wife Marion Coutts – who contributes a moving erword.
Until Further Notice, I Am Alive is an occasional journal that Lubbock shaped into book form during that time, aware that his diagnosis was terminal. As you read your way through and approach the back cover, life and the book you're holding close down together. It is an endlessly lively and surprising book. But the title misleads. Apart from them, no other ties come into view.
The late Tom Lubbock ( Marion Coutts ). This extraordinary, vast little book enacts Larkin's almost-instinct, almost true: what has remained of him is love. He was a writer secondly. First, he looked, not at himself nor soliciting the admiration of the reader, but at the image he was writing about.
Before Lubbock's illness, Coutts regarded herself purely as a visual artist and not a writer. In 2012 Coutts contributed the introduction to her husband's posthumously released memoir, Until Further Notice, I Am Alive. Feeling unable to create anything while her husband underwent treatment, she turned to writing. In 2009 after Lubbock's first brain surgery and rounds of chemotherapy, Coutts began to jot things down in a series of Word docs. In 2012 Coutts contributed the introduction to her husband's posthumously released memoir, Until Further Notice, I Am Alive

Tom Lubbock, art critic of The Independent, was 50, with an artist wife, Marion Coutts, and an 18-month-old son, Eugene, when in September 2008 he learnt that he was dying. Apparently he’d had several fits in the night, and been rushed off by ambulance, but he missed all the drama - as far as he was concerned he’d gone to sleep in one place and woken in another. The Ipswich diagnosis was that he’d suffered a stroke, but over the next few days in London he learnt that he had a grade-four brain.
