Good on Stevenage,
By A Customer
This review is from: No Place Like Home (Paperback)
Younge's first chapter, on growing up in Stevenage and then returning to it, is absolutely spot-on. I'm about the same age as Gary, and it was exactly as he recalls it: your mates all getting good jobs and apprenticeships at British Aerospace when you were going to university, and then coming back in the late Eighties and finding the place shot to bits, unkempt, dirty. If Mr Younge is as perceptive in the rest of the book (about which I have no direct experience) as he is about Stevenage (of which I have) then he's a writer to be trusted.
