Description

Go on a journey to a world that is no longer, as The Sunday Times Bestselling author Alan Johnson tells his story of growing up with a passion for music in a London that has long gone.

A world of Dansettes and jukeboxes, Bowie and Springsteen, smoky coffee shops and dingy dance halls, Bob Dylan and The Beatles, Alan talks us through his life as a young aspiring musician, a postman, a prominent Union member, an MP and member of the New Labour cabinet.
In My Life is Alan Johnson’s third memoir, following on from This Boy, winner of the Orwell Prize in 2013, and Please Mister Postman, winner of the National Book Award for Autobiography in 2014.
