    What a childhood!

    I came to this book via a recommendation rather than as a fan of the music. It’s well written and easy to read, and the story kept me interested from beginning to end. While the story is very much about Barnes life, the descriptions of life in Glasgow and as an immigrant in Elizabeth are eye opening. It’s shameful to see how the immigration programme let these people down. It’s a wonder he has survived the various challenges-both self inflicted and inherited. Can’t wait to read the sequel.

    Brilliant.

    This beautifully, honest and heart rending autobiography raised many issues that have been laying asleep like an inactive volcano. His honesty and insight has inspired me to begin a journey of healing too.....soon! This working class boy has found a place of love and respect in my heart. I wish him everything good in life and thank you for his honesty.

    amazing!

    This story blew me away! What a childhood - the violence, poverty,abuse - something no child should endure! but then there was times of love and happiness. I cried, gringed and laughed through Jimmys life.
