In My Life: A Music Memoir

In My Life: A Music Memoir

Alan Johnson
06 Alan JohnsonIn My Life: A Music Memoir

Saturday 23 March 2019 3pm | £10 pp

Alan Johnson, former Home Secretary and author of This Boy, Please Mister Postman and The Long and Winding Road, will be exploring his fourth work In My Life: A Music Memoir, which looks back at his life through the music that formed an integral part of it.

From being transported by the sound of 'True Love' by Bing Crosby and Grace Kelly on the radio, as a small child living in condemned housing in ungentrified West London in the late 1950s, to going out to work as a postman humming 'Watching the Detectives' by Elvis Costello in 1977, Alan Johnson's life has always had a musical soundtrack.

Part of York Literature Festival
