5.0 out of 5 stars Bringing it all back home strickes a chord, 13 Nov. 2007
I was not quite sure what to expect from Ian Clayton the author as opposed to the tv presenter. For a few minutes on screen, i'd always found him engaging and interesting, but for a whole book, that's quite a different matter.
What i found was a book of great warmth, a deeply personal book that gets under your skin, sparks off memories and has a direct emotional impact.
It's an autobiographical book about Ian, a book about music, a book about infatuations, growing and changing, about northern working class life. And whilst its about all of those things, its also much more universal then that. Many of the stories in the book resonated strongly, often the
context was different but the underlying experience very similiar.
This is a brilliant book, its got me reading again, and listening to music again, and its got me thinking a lot about my upbringing, my family,my kids and what really matters.
