Andrew Collins. Where Did It All Go Right?
If you would like to know what it was like to grow up in an English town (Northampton) in the 1970s, then this book is very good. Nothing very dramatic happens but you will learn a lot about English people and what makes them tick.
Andrew Collins had a normal childhood but he kept diaries of every year from the time he was six years old. He records what he and his family had for dinner, what sweets they ate, where they went on holiday and what he was doing in school. He grows up through this documentation but his sense of humour shines through and his affection for his family underpins the book.
It is full of nostalgia, what toys he played with, who is friends were and where they played and what inspired him to grow up to work in journalism and the media. It is a very funny book and very well observed.
