Confessions of a Butcher Boy

ByNorman Raybone

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
This is a book, from the era of the Peaky Blinders, Frank McCourt, author of Angela's Ashes, would have loved. This book is important for a number of reasons.  It deals with a unique time in British history.  Norman's story is that of 20th Century Britain, from its beginning with Zeppelin raids over the UK during the First World War, through the Second World War; the birth of the NHS; IRA bombs and the Millennium.  It also has no agenda. And surprisingly little emotion.  Norman's tenacity and timing with his writing means he is perhaps one of the very first 'citizen journalists.’ Technology now allows many people to record their life stories and recollections. But Norman was one of the first, perhaps unwittingly, to use the new technology of the time, the PC, to tell his story.  All for the love of his family.
