Memoirs From A Council Estate

Biography / Autobiography

LoveReading View on Memoirs From A Council Estate

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.

Memoirs From A Council Estate Synopsis

Born in Huddersfield in 1961 to parents Frederick and Jean, Graham Buckley grew up living on a council estate. Now, he looks back on his youth in Memoirs... From a Council Estate, a hilarious collection of the ridiculous japes and outrageous situations Graham encountered.

With tales of dangerous games that would make parents wince, playing pranks on his pals and schoolyard scuffles, Graham fondly remembers his childhood and his side-splitting misadventures. Readers follow his story as he enters adolescence and adulthood, with the world of work and marriage providing equally humorous encounters.

With characters ranging from the funny to the unbelievable, Memoirs... From a Council Estate is a laugh-out-loud trip down memory lane, perfect for fans of nostalgia and readers who grew up in the area.
