Reviews - Alan Johnson: This Boy and Mr. Postman
This Boy: A Memoir of Childhood (4*)
Please, Mr. Postman: a Memoir (3*)
Alan Johnson is well-known as a politician but his memoirs are more social than political, and rather good. I wish we could be confident that someone from his ordinary and actually rather deprived background could still achieve similar things today.
Key to star ratings: 5* would read over and over again, 4* enjoyed it a lot and would recommend, 3* enjoyable/interesting, 2* didn't enjoy, 1* gave up.
