Inhaltsangabe

In this much-anticipated sequel, Hunter now looks back across five decades of successful writing to reflect on his colourful memories of living in London during the height of the Swinging '60s; becoming editor of Britain's first colour weekend supplement The Sunday Times magazine, where he befriended the Beatles; and reporting on (and partying with) some of the biggest names in television, film and theatre of the day. As time moved on into the 1970s, '80s and '90s, Hunter encountered the likes of Sir Michael Caine, George Best, Melvyn Bragg, Joan Bakewell, Sir Sean Connery, Cilla Black, Paul Gascoigne, and Wayne Rooney, to name a few.

Hunter brings the story full circle to reflect on his years spent with the love of his life - the best-selling writer Margaret Forster, who sadly passed away in February 2016. This will not only be a colourful and enjoyable memoir of what it was like to be at the epicentre of Britain's artistic heart but also an emotional, heartfelt tribute to family, friends and colleagues. For those captivated by The Co-op's Got Bananas!, this sequel is a must listen.

Kritikerstimmen

"Ken Loach might have turned all this into a powerful social film, but the avuncular Davies sprinkles in so many cheery anecdotes that the book bounces along enjoyably." (Sunday Times)

"He recalls his childhood growing up in Scotland and Cumbria in the Forties and Fifties, capturing gritty working-class life with humour and charm and painting a vivid picture of that period of social history." (Press Association)

"A cheery memoir of the Forties and Fifties.... In among the rationing and the bombsites, this is really a love story between Hunter and his wife of 56 years, Margaret Forster, who died earlier this year.... What sets this book apart, though, is its avoidance of cliché and its determination to reveal everything that might be revealed." (Daily Mail)
