And as I've been a fan of Guy N Smith for many years ~ I first came across him whilst looking at all the covers for his horror novels (I was far too young to read them!) that my brother had in his substantial book collection in the late 70s/very early 80s.. From there on, it was inevitable, that I would pick them up and start reading them someday..
Now obviously a story synopsis is a bit pointless here, seeing as this is an autobiography of the renowned British author, Pipe Smoking Champion and Countryman journalist Guy N Smith.. So instead I'll just give you a little idea as to what the book's like...
Smith's style is very matter of fact, allowing his natural humour, enthusiasm and appreciation of things to endear the reader to him. He never tries particularly hard to amuse the reader, or win them over with flashy, crowd pleasing anecdotes. Instead just rolling along with a neat humble style, which gives a brief outline of his different interests and personal history.
From the outset he maintains that he didn't really want to write an autobiography for fear of seeming egotistical, but has been badgered into it over the years by his fans (and others), along with a desire to create some form of family record.
His fans he openly invites to his house (free of charge ~ He refuses to charge them for any autographs they might want either!) for a big get together and social every year..
Themes that feature heavily are his love of hunting and respect for the British countryside.
His obvious love of writing.
His ability to turn his hand at numerous ventures whilst still maintaining a certain self discipline.Read more ›
