Anyone who enjoys good storytelling will find plenty to enjoy in this splendid collection of stories from Liverpudlian author John Williams.
Mingling his own personal experiences with descriptions of Merseyside in years gone by, John recalls such diverse activities as travelling the world with the Merchant Navy, working on Liverpool's famous waterfront, living on a Kibbutz in Israel in the 1970s, becoming a mature student at Liverpool University in later life and much else...
Whilst some of his his stories focus on his childhood in the 1950s and his youth in the 1960s, when the Beatles attracted worldwide attention to the city, he also writes about prominent events, personalities, pubs, clubs and other places of interest that have featured in the city's colourful history over the last 50 years, and this is certain to evoke many memories for fellow Liverpudlians.
But you certainly don’t need to be Liverpudlian to enjoy these entertaining stories, which feature universal subjects that anyone can relate to – of family life, growing up, people and places and amusing incidents of every kind.
John's thoughtful and humorous writing has already won him many fans around the world.
