'It was the biography that I would have written if my parents had not been given benefits, if they'd had to rely on parish hand outs ... [I] want to press this book into your hands and go, "You must read this".' Caitlin Moran 'Remarkable that from so bleak and unloving a background came a writer of such affectionate understanding and unsettling honesty' Sunday Telegraph 'What makes this writer's self-told tale so memorable?... An absolute recall, a genius for the unforgettable detail, the rare chance of subject' The Good Book Guide 'Should be long and widely read as an extraordinary human story and social document' Observer
