Memories are Made of These... Paperback / softback
by Jack Dawes
Memories Are Made of These...is an autobiographical account by Jack Dawes of his boyhood and his formative years as a young adult.
Growing up in the sixties and early seventies, this really is another country, particularly the account of his schooldays which will have the reader rolling about with mirth.
It's hard to imagine these types of antics taking place in the politically correct schoolroom of today.
The author chronicles his schooldays, his time at College, a particularly funny episode spent working for the Tax Inspectorate followed by his first foray into life as a secondary school teacher in Liverpool.
Each chapter is so redolent of the time, a blissful pre internet age when human relationships and interactions were all.
More than a little nostalgic but without any element of rose tint, this charming account is evocative and funny and really does capture the essence of a bygone time.
The reader will definitely be looking for the sequel.
