Things Ain't What They Used to be, Paperback

Things Ain't What They Used to be Paperback


Were the 70s and 80s all they were cracked up to be? Or have we never had it so good? Philip Glenister - one of our best-loved actors - takes a swig of Babycham, jumps on his space hopper, and heads off down memory lane to find out.

Which Bond was better - Roger Moore or Daniel Craig?

Was life better when we were served lashings of gravy, instead of a 'drizzle of jus'? And - most important of all - have Curly Wurlys really got smaller, or have we all just got bigger? Philip Glenister's Things Ain't What They Used to Be is a hilarious and affectionate look at the good, the bad and the ugly from three very different decades, that will have you laughing (and cringing) with recognition.

If you're going on a nostalgia trip, you couldn't ask for a better guide.
