A brilliant book. I thoroughly enjoyed every part of it. I was brought up in Garston during the 1950s and early 1960s and so I was familiar with all the streets etc mentioned in the book. I also remember clearly, having our milk delivered by, affectionately referred to by all the locals, as 'old' Mr Joy and his brother and 'young' Eric, the authors father' and Danny the horse who knew the round and where and when to stop without the need to be told.

What a read that was! I was truly blown away by this book "my family and other scousers". The author's recollections were brought to life with a mixture of wit and respect for family life. He gives a genuine, warm and nostalgic insight into his upbringing and in particular the summer of 69. It took me back to my days growing up in 1960's Liverpool before I was 'evacuated'. Just to quote one bit I remembered from the time was the description of the smell of the mixture of fish and chips and burning coal. Although the times were 'a changin' he has done a great job in capturing that special period in his life for all to read. And what an ending! Great book Dave Joy. I look forward to your next.

Very much enjoyed reading about life in part of Liverpool that was just up the road from where I lived in 60's/70's. I very vaguely remember horse & cart delivering coal but not milk in my day. Here the characters are well drawn and pass the acid test - do we care for them? Yes! Trouble is - now we want more from DeeJay & pals...

I grew up 5 miles from Garston in the 60s and 70s but didn’t really know the place. It was just where you went to sign on, and take your driving test. My dad used to talk very warmly about it though. Having read Dave’s book I now feel like I know every street, and half the people! I wish I’d made a bit more effort. Perhaps I’ll even go and have a look around to see what has survived. Dave’s book really is that good.

I knew one of the characters that Dave writes about very well. I thought she was exaggerating about the Hillman…

Truly excellent book written in such a descriptive way that we are there with him, catching our breath after cycling so fast, or hearing the sound of Danny's hooves on the road. An amazing read which had me completely immersed.
