Recensioner i media
`Richly rewarding...A minor masterpiece. His portrait of his absurd and loveable father is extraordinarily touching; that of the failure of his relationship with his mother scarcely less so. The book is extremely funny in places, extremely poignant in others and extremely well-written throughout - in fact, I haven't enjoyed anything so much in ages.' Sunday Telegraph `Elegiac, reflective and very funny.' TLS `Highly engaging' Independent `Funny and moving...Few [memoirs] are written with as much skill and sensitivity as this one. Moving without being mawkish, Hastings's book is a trove of marvellous stories' Sunday Times `This brave and poignant book is the self-portrait of an extremely talented outsider who has spent his life trying to live up to his father's achievements. It is also the emotional journey of a son's heart-rending non-relationship with his mother.' Daily Telegraph `In this slim, delightful book [Hastings] reveals himself as never before.' Andrew Marr, FT `A brilliantly entertaining book, full of funny, well-told stories.' Scotsman
