GUEST,Canadienne BS: Your Favorite Biography (19) RE: BS: Your Favorite Biography 05 Jun 07

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
