I recommend this for some gentle undemanding fun - maybe over a nice cup of tea and a biscuit. You couldn't get much more english than that...
The book is a collection of reminiscences of English boyhood during the fifties/sixties, one or two amusing short stories and some curmudgeonly reflections on growing older and modern life. The book doesn't really have a point, mainly it's an enjoyable meandering memoir of a different time and place with some sharp observations thrown in. The stories have an English sensibility (that gentle British humour I alluded to) but I think that the stories will have universal appeal to anyone of the baby boomer generation.
If you are waiting to see the dentist this would be the ideal book to cheer you up.
While in some ways this book is an important piece of social history, this particular trip into the recent past is full of humour.
The author takes us on a jaunt through his early years. His self-deprecating outlook on life is refreshing and full of laugh-out-loud moments.
Along with these nostalgic and amusing tales, Philip also takes a wry 'sideways look' at the weird and wonderful things that occur nowadays.
If you need something to read for a real 'lift', I can't recommend this book highly enough!
