Roger The Boxer: I am just passing through

Author: Roger Canon Format: Paperback Release Date: 30/01/2022

An autobiographical narrative with plenty of highs and lows. ‘Roger the Boxer: I am just passing through’ by Roger Canon is an open and honest, no holds barred, no nonsense reflection by the author on his life. Filled with colourful characters and told by someone who was a part of a colourful crowd, this is Roger the Boxer’s story. There are elements of self reflection throughout and although truthfully describing the scrapes and predicaments he finds himself in over the years I liked that the author managed to maintain a more neutral tone - neither glorifying nor excessively condemning his past. Running through his early life, his time in the boxing ring and on the rugby pitch, his tendencies towards violence and use of cocaine, his prison sentence and how he steadily turned his life around and built a successful business. Throughout, Canon portrays himself in a way that's relatable - he’s a human, who has made a lot of mistakes, but has hopefully managed to learn from them and worked on healing their root causes. ‘Roger the Boxer: I am just passing through’ is an interesting read, the life and times of a working class Cockney battled through in ‘a mostly catastrophic manner’. This book delivered insight into a world and perspective I would not have known previously, from the obvious to the author’s seemingly straightforward experience of acquiring his first mortgage. I think that this is an illuminating read for fans of autobiographies. Charlotte Walker, A LoveReading Ambassador
