About this book
The bestselling memoir, now in paperback. Reviews were very strong, and O'Grady's considerable fanbase is sure to make this mass market edition a similar success. 'One of the most brilliantly observed testimonies to working-class life I've ever read' "Daily Mirror". 'While most celeb memoirs are as memorable as an air kiss, O'Grady's is a proper snog' "The Scotsman"
A story of the author's early life in Irish Catholic Birkenhead that started him on the long and winding road from mischievous altar boy to national treasure. It includes a tale of gossip in the back yard, bragging in the corner shop and slanging matches on the front doorstep.
