Product description

Review

The adventures of a Belfast Breadboy prove to be an uplifting tale irish Examiner Weekend Breadboy delivers Antrim Guardian a tale of courage, optimism, and simple niceness Belfast Telegraph Breadboy is an affectionately-drawn memoir, in many ways a cultural survey of the era, part personal narrative, part historical record. The narrative style is easy and sharp, with a colourful, humorous edge that keeps things lively and engaging. News Letter Behind Tony's straight-laced exterior, there beats the heart of a hilarious and gifted writer who's published a couple of darkly comical books about growing up in Belfast. The latest really is a laugh a minute. -- Ivan Little Belfast Telegraph

About the Author

TONY MACAULAY grew up at the top of the Shankill Road in Belfast, an experience which has shaped his life, and about which he has written in Paperboy and Breadboy. Tony has spent the last thirty years working for peace and reconciliation at home and abroad. In the 1990s he developed and implemented youth programmes on conflict resolution, and in 2008, following his experience of living and working on the peace lines, he developed a discussion paper proposing a process for the removal of the peace walls in Northern Ireland. Tony is also a writer and broadcaster and is a regular contributor to BBC Radio Ulster.

Coming from Northern Ireland, a few years younger than the author I was able to identify with all of the issues, comments and places he spoke of. It was an entertaining and thought-provoking read.

A great read, especially if you grew up in the 70's and 80's in Northern Ireland and asked the question why did it have to be like this?

Nice one Tony. We've been waiting patiently for breadboy and it was worth the wait! If you enjoyed Paperboy you will certainly enjoy what the "Westy"crew done next! Laugh out loud moments or cringe worthy situations(and we've all been there!) The tears rolled down my cheeks. Having spent many hours with the author at YMCA Greenhill I can only say thank goodness the kids we had there didn't know about your first visit !!
Full of good old NI humour yet reminding us of how far we've come on this wee island of ours Breadboy is a must read -especially for the younger generation who thankfully and hopefully will never experience the "troubles" we lived through .

Format: Paperback
I got the book at the launch in easons Belfast (sorry Amazon) A great sequel to the paper boy, documenting the next two years of Tony's not on the CV jobs. He has progressed in is career to being a bread boy working on the last Ormo mini van delivering bread around the Shankhill.

Again it highlights the "normalities" of growing up where you starting noticing girls, tryng to get a girl, spots, shaving or nearly shaving and trying to find you own identity in 1970s Belfast with shooting and bombs.

Best line was "You can't be ginger and wee and a bee gee". One point I would say was, no one knew who Luke Skywalker's father was until 1980 when Empire Strikes back came out. (Pedantic Pat).

Overall great book and well worth a read.
