There are just so many I hardly know where to start -
Just as a "classic" "Flushed with Pride - The story of Thomas Crapper" - a must for the "bathroom library"
"Turlough" by Brian Keenan - it does what it says on the cover "…evokes the terrors of the dark, the beauty of song, and the pain from which it springs….."
"Jacques Brel" by Alan Clayson - just because he's such a fantastic singer/songwriter
Could I also add some autobiographies…..
"An Awfully Big Adventure" by Beryl Bainbridge - a personal experience of "coming of age" in Liverpool in the 50s by an excellent writer
"Your Dinner's Poured Out" by Paddy Crosby - a boyhood in a Dublin that has disappeared
"A Ragged Schooling" by Robert Roberts - life in the streets of Industrial Salford before the First World War
I love these because they open up worlds we have forgotten or never knew……….
Thanks for the opportunity to share just a few Mickey
