Overview

There but for the grace of God (go I) is a comparison between an unknown living man and a famous missing child. It engages in weighing up the value of a life: what constitutes real success.

By combining true-crime, live song and autobiography, Adam Welsh reflects on the care parents have for their children, but how they can’t always help them. It is a meditation on how tragedy can render the world meaningful, an investigation into why we are not yet dead…
