Danny Baker was born in Deptford, South East London in June 1957, and from an early age was involved in magazine journalism, with the founding of fanzine Sniffin' Glue alongside friend Mark Perry. From there he moved to documentary series for LWT and over the years worked on a variety of quiz shows (Win, Lose or Draw, Pets Win Prizes, TV Heroes), as well two television commercials which made him a household name—Daz and Mars Bars. With a number of guest appearences on comedy shows such as Have I Got News For You, Shooting Stars, and Room 101, Danny has also presented on BBC Radio since 1989. Most recently he presents a weekday show on BBC London 94.9 and a weekly show on BBC Radio 5 Live. This book charts Danny's showbiz career, the highs and lows, and everything in between, including the accusation that he killed Bob Marley.

Joie de vivre, this Teflon spirit, is the engine that drives this memoir....Indeed, throughout this tome, Baker doesn't so much drop famous names as fire them at you with a cannon for seemingly no other reason than to amuse and entertain with top-notch anecdotes... This book is a hoot, buzzing with Baker's impressive recall and nuclear-strength warmth and humour. Going to Sea in a Sieve emerges not only as a portrait of Baker the individual, but also as a hymn to bygone times that is as affectionate as it is brutally unsentimental and hilarious. The perfect read for anyone interested in music, football, media, British cultural history, or indeed just having a really good laugh.―THE OBSERVER
An instant ray of sunshine in these dank days of winter.―METRO

Rollicking first instalment of the life story of the broadcaster, covering his childhood in southeast London's Deptford and working as a pop critic and a 'yoof-for-hire' on TV.―SAGA
Baker writes as he speaks, with honesty and infectious joie de vivre.―SUNDAY EXPRESS
Reading Baker's memoirs feels a bit like flying transatlantic with an irrepressibly garrulous stranger....the alacrity and invention of his mind is obvious.―Mojo
Like its author, Baker's book is garrulous, preening, self-mocking and funny. It's as rattling to read as it evidently was to write. In the proud Baker tradition, it's a bit of a knockout.―NEW STATESMAN
