A. A. Gill
AA Gill is the acerbic TV and travel critic of the Sunday Times.
Born in 1960 into a working-class family in South-East England, Nathan Gill's early fascination with the mysteries of the body and the universe led him to experiment with diet and herbal treatments, and to push his body to the limit with weight-training and body-building. When a shoulder injury brought the weight-training to an end, his thoughts turned to spiritual and esoteric matters. His investigations led him to the teachings of Da Free John, whose message that we are already awake and need no liberation struck a strong chord, and eventually to Tony Parsons and the philosophy of non-duality. During his years of spiritual seeking, Nathan was divorced, married and divorced again, a single parent to his two daughters throughout most of their school years, working as a gardener in a small village in Kent. His health, however, never robust, deteriorated increasingly over time and he became weaker and weaker. Unable to work and with no prospect of a cure, rather than live in pain and dependency, in June 2014 he took the decision to end his own life.
