Considering that Paul Johnson left the Potteries when he was "nearly eleven", this is a remarkably vivid account of his early years there. Set in the context of the history of his family, the local area and national events, it will be a delightful read for any current or former resident of the Potteries.

Almost a novel, albeit with a lot of historical background. This is because so little is known of the real Socrates, I guess.
