I loved the way his early life is told through food experiences. I found the way the tragedy unfolds so poignent. I also loved the way food is shown to be a weapon by manipulative people and a tool of power by adults and children. We all ate this ghastly food in the 60s and lived to tell the tale but our post war indulgencies were setting us up for the horrors of Super Sized Me and Jamie's School dinners. I myself am thoroughly sick of cooking and the guilt it produces - does anyone ever get it right? If I never see Nigella Lawson again it won't be too soon. Another thing I hail from Wolverhampton ( a much maligned and easily ridiculed town )and enjoyed his descripion of repressed midlands prosperus suburbia. All in all a jolly good read. Tomrrow I am going to Barcelona and will leave it lying around for someone to pick up this is a bit like message in a bottle.
