In 'memoirs from a council estate', Graham Buckley takes us on an outrageously mischievous romp through the years of his youth growing up on a council estate in Huddersfield in the 60s and 70s. Pranks and scuffles, which till relatively recently would have brought an ASBO, are looked back at fondly, although on occasion a little sheepishly. Though no literary genius, the author evokes the feel of the times, when things were certainly very different and children had the freedom to make their own entertainment, even if, like in 'Lord of the Flies', that sometimes got out of hand! This is an honest and nostalgic account of the adventures and narrow escapes of an ordinary boy and his mates and the enduring bonds that were created, before health and safety made it's appearance. A fun and easy read. Drena Irish, A LoveReading Ambassador
