4.0 out of 5 stars Well done Tintin, 17 Dec. 2006
This review is from: We All Live in a Perry Groves World (Hardcover)
I only really bought the book as part of an 'unofficial campaign' to outsell 'Cashley', so I was pleasantly surprised to find it was actually a good read.

Perry dishes plenty of dirt, and has an enjoyable, self-deprecating sense of humour about his experiences. He's clearly a right scallywag, but he knows it, and he does express bittersweet feelings about his misdemeanours and his philanderings. It's done in a refreshingly light-hearted, frank style.

It's not easy to tell how much of the book was written by the 'co-author', and it's fascinating to think how much censorship (and self-censorship) went on. I'm sure his funniest stories were too incriminating to print.

The best thing about the book, for me, is the insight into life at Arsenal FC during the George Graham era. Childhood fans will love to remember some of those games we watched from the stands, and let Perry colour in some amusing details about the characters who played at the time; it doesn't seem quite so intangible after reading Mr. Groves' tales.
