  • An engaging read

    This first instalment of Alan Johnson's autobiography begins in a world far removed from the heights of political power eventually scaled by the author. From a background of deprivation in the aftermath of the second world war, his early memories are recounted in a lively and readable style that made me want to read more.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • This Boy

    When Tony Blair first met Alan Johnson he called him, " Real working class". This Boy is a brilliant memoir of his childhood.

  • Life in London slums

    This is a beauifully writen book.a joy to read. Heart breaking at times.but not sentimenal. I wonder at the fortitude of Alans sister. I was quite sad when the book came to an end.

    Thanks for your feedback!
