9780091949907: Under a Mackerel Sky

All men should strive to learn before they die what they are running from, and to, and why.

Rick Stein's childhood in 1950s rural Oxfordshire and North Cornwall was idyllic. His parents were charming and gregarious, their five children much-loved, and given freedom typical of the time. As he grew older, the holidays were filled with loud and lively parties in his parents' Cornish barn. But ever-present was the unpredictable mood of his bipolar father, with Rick frequently the focus of his anger and sadness. When Rick was 18, his father killed himself. Emotionally adrift, Rick left for Australia, carrying a suitcase stamped with his father's initials. Manual labor in the outback followed by adventures in America and Mexico toughened up the naive public schoolboy, but at heart he was still lost and unsure what to do with his life. Eventually, Cornwall called him home. From the entrepreneurial days of his mobile disco, the Purple Tiger, to his first, unlikely nightclub where much of the time was spent breaking up drink-fueled fights, Rick charts his personal journey in a way that is both wry and perceptive, engaging, and witty. This title was shortlisted for the Specsavers National Book Awards in 2013.

Review:

"Stein's brilliant memoir traces his halcyon days spent in Australia, culminating on his home turf, Cornwall." -- The Daily Telegraph The Daily Telegraph "In one of the most absorbing and moving memoirs I can remember reading, Rick lays himself bare in just over three hundred pages of compulsive honesty." -- Richard Madeley Richard and Judy Book Club 2014 "This is essentially a memoir of lost youth. It will move you to laughter and tears." -- Judy Finnigan Richard and Judy Book Club 2014 "Dealing with his father's suicide by heading for the outback, catching a freighter from New Zealand to New York, running a nightclub: Stein has plenty to talk about before he gets to fish restaurants in Padstow and becoming a fixture of food TV. His fine autobiography never shies away from that defining tragedy and how it rippled through his life, even revealing his sudden need, last summer, to swim to the Cornish cliffs where his dad died." -- Allan Jenkins and Gareth Grundy The Observer Food Monthly
