The amazing life of Madness frontman and national treasure, Suggs

Synopsis

That Close by Suggs

Suggs is one of pop music's most enduring and likeable figures. Written with the assured style and wit of a natural raconteur, this hugely entertaining and insightful autobiography takes you from his colourful early life on a North London council estate, through the heady early days of Punk and 2-Tone, to the eighties, where Madness became the biggest selling singles band of the decade. Along the way he tells you what it's like to grow up in sixties Soho, go globetrotting with your best mates, to make a dead pigeon fly and cause an earthquake in Finsbury Park.

I love reading books I wouldn't normally choose before everyone else gets to read them!

A great place to go to find your next literary escape, and where you don't have to judge a book by its cover!

Thanks to Lovereading I have discovered new writers and read books I would never had looked twice at - and enjoyed them.

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.

I love reading because my cares & woes vanish for an hour or two whilst I read of the joys, adventures, lives of the characters in the book.
