But, written at a fast and frantic piece, full of warm, sometimes laugh out loud vignettes, and also dark observations (Heard of The Walton Hop?? The stalking predatory arena for Jonathan King and his fellow paedos), anyone can enjoy this and I felt it very reminiscent of the Danny Baker autobiogs...warm, human and full of joy and discovery.Indeed I feel a TV adaption (albeit slightly shorter than Cradle to the Grave) would be a very fine thing.
Looking back, this was a very key time in British history. Thatcher was just getting her claws into British society, and no picnic for the caring and compassionate humanity that lived through it I can tell you.Read more ›
A Crafty Cigarette took me back to my teenage years full of excitement and troubles, dreams and challenges. I actually remembered long forgotten events from those years (long gone). Matteo uses amazingly colourful and personal writing style with a sarcastic edge which I love.
Anyways, Im going back to reading as Im curious how the current chapter unfolds...
Go and get it! Worth every penny.
Recommended if you want a snapshot of life in the late 70s/early 80s.
It featured a lot of situations that I indentified with. The language used is down to earth and easy to comprehend yet creates vivid images.It is a fast paced read and very believable, in fact I think it maybe an autobiography without really meaning to be.
This years best book ever if you were a mod in the late 70s early 80s - an absolute pleasure to read, I highly recommend
Very good book, laugh out loud moments. If like me you were at school at this time 79-84, were into the revival, you'll love this book.
