Vikus
Politics apart, this is a very well written book and to me more interesting because I used to live near Sheffield. It contains a lot of the same Yorkshire ways with which I grew up later on, things which I thought of as usual for my family and now realise were usual for everyone. An interesting book from the history side and also as nostalgia.

Roy Hattersley, a career politician, writes more fluidly than many journalists. If you have read his history books, you will enjoy this offering. If you know virtually nothing about provincial life a generation or two ago in England, as in my case, you will find this piece of family history revealing. The author dwells at some length about family secrets, which greatly influenced the course of his upbringing.

The author recounts his boyhood growing up in a household of overprotective adults. It covers the hardships of the 1930s and the Blitz, while he gives anecdotes of learning to ride a bicycle or picking blackberries.

His memories are vivid and entertaining.
