I loved this book. It conjures up feelings sights smells and sounds of growing up in the 70s and 80s brilliantly. It is surprisingly funny considering the subject matter. It also provides authoritative first hand accounts of care and provision for people with mental health problems at the time.
It is both a really gripping story about a young man triumphing over his circumstances, told with humour and incite but also an important commentary on issues affecting people with mental health problems.
The book is optimistic and joyful in its ending and beautifully written. Both my partner and myself loved it and would recommend it to everyone.
