    Really enjoyed this book but I have to be honest and admit that I grew up just round the corner from the author and that members of my family are mentioned in it in passing! I read it initially because I was interested in his reminiscences of our hometown and our old schools but I found his account of social mobility, both his own and generally, fascinating and so many of his experiences and feelings in particular circumstances rang true with my own.
