The Golly in the Cupboard

May 2004  pp300 paperback £7.99 Tamic Publications Limited ISBN 0-9547649-0-0

"This is a brilliant evocation of a turbulent childhood, which I read at one sitting interrupted only by a night's sleep. It should be required reading for everyone whose life impinges on that of a neglected child and deserves a much wider audience.  The author has woven together from records kept on him and his own memory, a fascinating account of his roots and how he came to be what he is."  Sir Ronald Waterhouse GBE

"an important and uplifting book ... the uplifting story of a man with an indomitable spirit"   Malcolm Dean, Assistant Editor - The Guardian

"streets ahead of its genre"   Graham Hopkins, Community Care Magazine
