Sample Book Insights:
#1 I was the fourth child in my family, and the first boy. My three older sisters were Jean, Iris, and Gillian. I didn’t have any fun in Aston, as there were only grey skies and corner pubs.
#2 I was a very nervous kid. I was terrified most of the time. I was terrified of impending doom, and I convinced myself that if I stepped on the cracks in the pavement while running home, my mother would die.
#3 My father was a good man, and he was strict but never beat me up or locked me in the coal house. He would always give up his seat on the bus for a woman or help an old lady across the road.
#4 I had an incredible imagination. I spent years wondering what beer must be like, until I finally drank some and thought, What the fuck is this shit. I didn’t think it was possible for me to make any money other than by working in a factory or robbing a bank. I was a kid trying to fit in with the local gangs.
