This is #55 of the Penguin 70 series.

From the cover:

"William Boyd has been writing popular, prize-winning fiction since Penguin published A Good Man in Africa in 1981. His fiction is often a revealing excavation of an individual life, and in Protobiography, part of which has previously only been privately published, Boyd turns to his own biography for inspiration by exploring his childhood in West Africa and his schooling in Scotland."

A biography written about Boyd's childhood and schooling in Africa and Scotland. He goes on to describe his life in boarding schools and the happenings that went on there. Read with interest.

CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:

Added to the NZ Bookbox, small enough not to take up too much room. Box to be sent on to Futurecat.

The NZ bookbox arrived yesterday, and I pulled this one out to quickly read while I was deciding which books to take from the box and what to replace them with.

Easily readable in a single sitting, this was a fascinating glimpse into the two very different worlds of the author's childhood - colonial Africa and Scottish boarding school.
