Colin Shindler was born and raised in Manchester, educated at Bury Grammar School and Gonville & Caius College Cambridge, and has worked as a writer and a producer in film, television and radio. He has written two novels and presented history programmes on radio and television. In addition to the books and articles he has written on sport and British and American social and cultural history, he also lectures on film and history at Cambridge University. In recent years he has never been happier than when he saw Lancashire win the County Championship in 2011.Review:
'****' * The Daily Telegraph * "Manchester City Ruined My Life...is funny, touching and telling." * Sunday Express * This could still be the most important football book since Fever Pitch capturing, as it does, the delicious irony that caused City fans to fall into a soon to be legendary chorus of "Are you watching Macclesfield?" * Mick Middles, Manchester Evening News * Sits in the same class as Fever Pitch ... Shindler's down-to-the-bone honesty also reminds us self-indulgence can be great entertainment * The Times * Evocative, funny-sad and warm-hearted * Michael Henderson, The Times * Shindler is both touching and convincing in his evocation of his formative years ... it's skilful, entertaining and heading for the top of the league * Richard Pendlebury, Daily Mail * Shindler's art lies in conversational writing, and an ability to change gear deftly from humour to devotion and back through fanaticism to the black comedy of Manchester City * Howard Davies, The Times * It is his childhood and absent friends that touch the rawest, universal nerve * Simon Garfield, Mail on Sunday * His prose ... is never less than sharp, smart and easy on the eye ... His writing is so attractive ... [I] would be thrilled to read more * Jim White, Guardian * Reviews of Manchester United Ruined My Life:"This is a wonderful book ... it is also extremely funny" * The Times *
