Zuerst habe ich den Film gesehen und wollte dann das Buch lesen. Hat mir gut gefallen, der eine Stern fehlt, weil das Vergnügen getrübt wurde, weil der Autor nur englische Gerichte, Snacks und Lebensmittel nennt. Klar, geht ja nicht anders, aber da fehlt eben der Wiedererkennungswert. ( )

Would of liked it more if the author had not undermined himself at times. Obviously I feel pretty sorry for him and I respect the humour with which he distances himself from what was an awful childhood on the whole, but it was rather repetitive and the sum of the parts did not add up to anything special - and I think handled better it might have. But it whiled away some long train journeys fairly pleasantly, even given the uncomfortable nature of much of it. ( )

This man can write about food so well. Reading of his memories invoked my own. The food ones. Couldn't much relate to his descriptions of sexual awakening. ( )

Actually, I can't recommend this book at all, as the childhood anecdotes are boring, and don't fit together into a narrative.

However, if you are into childhood (mostly) food anecdotes, do yourself a favour and skip everything after his father's death. The stories of his early experiences in hotel kitchens alternate between disgusting food incidents and too much sex. The tone is completely different from most of the book. ( )

A lovely memoir of growing-up and becoming sexually aware in the 1960s, told in bite-sized chunks of food memories.

I grew up at the same time as Nigel and I knew some of his loneliness and isolation, so I was rooting for him all the way. I cried when his beloved mother died when he was so young. I felt for him as his stiff and emotionless father showed his disappointment in the unsporty young Nigel. I winced with him at his overbearing and manipulative stepmother.

All the time, I could taste the lumpy Bisto gravy and the tinned peaches of a 60s childhood, alternately salivating and retching. Fascinating and evocative.
