As a hugely successful rock star in his late 30s, Blur bassist Alex James realises he has only one career path. It's time to move to a very big house in the country and set up a farm. Swapping hedonistic nights in the Groucho for early morning starts, this book details James' transformation from rock god to cheesemaker.

About the Author:

Writer, musician and cheesemaker Alex James is best known as the bass player in Blur, a time he chronicled in his acclaimed first book A BIT OF A BLUR.Alex James lives on a farm in Oxfordshire with his wife and five children. He writes a weekly column on all things food for the SUN, as well a regular column on farm and family life for the SUNDAY TELEGRAPH.

Review:

`James's prose is clean and poetic. His childlike wonder at the simple things - from herons to heaps of rubble - can be infectious' DAILY TELEGRAPH`A joy to read. Prose flows and weaves and curls itself into pleasing rhythms...(Alex James) can write like a god' SPECTATOR`The upbeat tone matches that of his Blur-era autobiography A BIT OF A BLUR, treating his downsize from rock heart-throb to cockerel-throttling country gent as if cheese contests were Britpop orgies. Riding bikes, the smell of berry bushes, piles of cow dung: all brilliant' NME

This is the story of Alex James s transition from a leading light of the Britpop movement in the 1990s, to gentleman farmer, artisan cheese-maker and father of five.`I was hanging around the pigsty in the way I d previously hung around at The Groucho Club. I felt wonderfully connected, grounded in the real world, standing in pig muck Following fifteen years in Blur, Alex James did two wild, unexpected things. He fell in love and he bought a farm.Moving into a rambling, chaotic farmstead in the beautiful Cotswold countryside, he decides the best way to learn about farming is the same way he learned most about music: by jumping in and doing it.

Prose flows and weaves and curls itself into pleasing rhythms.He can write like a god. SPECTATOR. Seller Inventory # AA89780007453146
