Journal Entry 1 by MichaelBush from Glasgow, Scotland United Kingdom on Thursday, July 29, 2004
I bought this book a little while ago, on the recommendation of a friend, and it's taken me a long time to get into it.

Perhaps it is because I am of 'the Nesquik era' of The Independant's quote on the back, but I found it very difficult to read. The chapters - little essays, each of them named after a different type of food or drink - were far too frequent, and seemed to hold no common thread between them other than the author and his family.

I'm told that the book holds a lot of nostalgia for those living in England in the sixties and seventies, and so it is that I am releasing it into the wild, in the hope that whoever finds it appreciates it more than I did.
