Críticas:

" Charming coming of age tale . An innocent's story, engagingly told." ( Mojo)

" Brought back happy memories when bands and their fans were as one." (Damian O'Neill, The Undertones)

"[A] gripping account of the post-punk period ... one of the most essential accounts of this tumultuous yet highly productive period of British music ... Tony Fletcher is an extraordinary character . This book will certainly bring back scores of vivid memories for those of us around Tony Fletcher's age, and is required reading for anyone who wishes to know more about the late 1970's music scene. More than that though, is the amazing human story and vivid characterisation that will have you hooked throughout as this period once again truly comes to life." ( louderthanwar.com)

"[An] excellent memoir of adolescent angst and musical obsession . it is surprisingly candid, wryly funny, occasionally harrowing, yet always honest in its descriptions . brilliantly written." ( All Mod Icon)

"Even if you weren't there when all this happened, the fast paced narrative will make you feel as if you were . An excellent read and I really would urge anyone with even a passing interest in punk, The Jam, The Who or what it was like being a music mad teenager in London in the late seventies to check it out." ( Faith Magazine)

Descripción Cornerstone, United Kingdom, 2014. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. 196 x 128 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. I was no longer fitting in at school. I was unsure of my friends, and they were increasingly unsure of me. I wanted to be a rock star. But while all around, voices were starting to break, acne beginning to appear, facial hair sprouting, I remained all flabby flesh and innate scruff, with a high-pitched whine and not a muscle to my name. I was the runt of the class and rarely allowed to forget it. I had no father at home to help me out, and could hardly talk to my mum. So I took solace in The Jam. As a boy, Tony Fletcher frequently felt out of place. Yet somehow he secured a ringside seat for one of the most creative periods in British cultural history. Boy About Town tells the story of the bestselling author s formative years in the pre- and post-punk music scenes of London, counting down, from fifty to number one: attendance at seminal gigs and encounters with musical heroes; schoolboy projects that became national success stories; the style culture of punks, mods and skinheads and the tribal violence that enveloped them; life as a latchkey kid in a single-parent household; weekends on the football terraces in a quest for street credibility; and the teenage boy s unending obsession with losing his virginity. Boy About Town is an evocative, bittersweet, amusing and wholly original account of growing up and coming of age in the glory days of the 1970s. Nº de ref. de la librería AAZ9780099558552
