This book is extremely well written and being able to listen to Alan reading it, is a true bonus!
His gentle, Yorkshire dialect is soothing and takes me home whenever I listen to him.
The book is both humorous and in parts sad. The relationship between his parents is rare these days, but certainly wasn't back then.
Alan clearly had a wonderful childhood which shaped the boy that became the man.
He is as good a writer as he is gardener and we are lucky to have him.
Perhaps if this book had been written before Trowel and Error it may not have mattered, however the book has all of the endearing qualities of the writter we know and love as much for his personality as his abilities in so many other areas, a man who has a great zest for life, and ehjoyment of everyday he lives.
