9780552170659: Please, Mister Postman

In July 1969, while the Rolling Stones played a free concert in Hyde Park, Alan Johnson and his young family left West London to start a new life. The Britwell Estate in Slough, apparently notorious among the locals, in fact came as a blessed relief after the tensions of Notting Hill, and the local community welcomed them with open arms.
Alan had become a postman the previous year, and in order to support his growing family took on every bit of overtime he could, often working twelve-hour shifts six days a week. It was hard work, but not without its compensations – the crafty fag snatched in a country lane, the farmer’s wife offering a hearty breakfast and even the mysterious lady on Glebe Road who appeared daily, topless, at her window as the postman passed by...
Please, Mister Postman paints a vivid picture of England in the 1970s, where no celebration was complete without a Party Seven of Watney’s Red Barrel, smoking was the norm rather than the exception, and Sunday lunchtime was about beer, bingo and cribbage. But as Alan’s life appears to be settling down and his career in the Union of Postal Workers begins to take off, his close-knit family is struck once again by tragedy...
Moving, hilarious and unforgettable, Please, Mister Postman is another astonishing book from the award-winning author of This Boy.

About the Author:

Alan Johnson was born in May 1950. He is a British Labour Party politician who served as Home Secretary from June 2009 to May 2010. Before that, he filled a wide variety of cabinet positions in both the Blair and Brown governments, including Health Secretary and Education Secretary. Until 20 January 2011 he was Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer. Johnson has been the Member of Parliament for Hull West and Hessle since 1997. His first book, This Boy, was published in 2013.

Review:

"The best political testament I have ever read" -- Peter Wilby New Statesman "This boy can write...there's nothing second-rate about his writing. He is a natural" The Spectator "A wonderful elegy for a life that has only just passed into history... Beautifully written, affecting and sad" -- John Rentoul Independent on Sunday "A fascinating piece of social history" -- Daisy Goodwin Sunday Times "Johnson's writing style is easy, relaxed, self-deprecating. His recall and eye for detail are impressive" -- Chris Mullin Observer "Full of delights" -- Francis Wheen Mail on Sunday "Like Johnson's previous memoirs, this latest instalment carries a first-class stamp" -- Caroline Jowett Daily Express "'Witty, self-deprecating, sometimes uproariously funny and sometimes unbearably sad. It shines like a candle in the naughty world of inauthentic politicians and public alienation" -- David Marquand New Statesman "Immensely readable" Scotland on Sunday "Beautifullly written... and vividly observed" Daily Mail
