The Review: These three tales follow the likeable Jamie through several stages of his growing up in the eighties and beyond. The author creates an authentic world and manages to conjure up great imagery with few words.
At times it’s funny, at others achingly sad, and quite often both. In fact, David nails the combination and I was reminded very much of Alan Bennett’s writing.
The stories don’t take long to read but I really felt I’d experienced Jamie’s coming out and I smiled and cringed at the behaviour of those around him. Marvellous, and I’d happily read more from Mr David.
The Verdict: A delightful Bennett-esque trio.
