God Love Him!
What a terrific read this was. Guaranteed to cheer up anyone down in the dumps. Most of us didn’t grow up in Belfast and so never experienced the Troubles at first-hand, but in spite of some terrifying experiences, Tony Macauley managed to make it so funny with his acute observations and throw-away lines, from ‘the only pacifist paperboy in West Belfast.’ Brilliant observations, and brilliantly written, because he remained the 12 to 13-year-old boy throughout. The adult perspective never intruded. I loved it – I loved him. Wonderful book!
