this-boyThis Boy is Alan Johnson’s wonderful memoir of his childhood in London in the 1950s and 60s, and for anyone born around 1950 the book will evoke long-forgotten memories. The book is an affectionate tribute to Alan’s mother, Lily and older sister, Linda, who are real-life heroines as they struggle to survive a life of poverty.

This is a warm, funny and uplifting book.  Read it! [96% of 300+ Amazon reviewers gave it the top ratings!]

The next chapter in Alan Johnson’s memoirs [Please, Mr Postman] is published in September 2014, and is eagerly awaited.
