Adrian Gill is a master of words despite unconquerable dyslexia which he openly details with just the same honesty, humour and bravery as he does the collection of relationships, stories, events and emotions that make up this sensational memoir.
AA Gill has had a life in two parts both of which he regales: one part drunk and one part sober. Both are told in his famously witty, cocky, erudite, powerful and truthful prose that in his second life made him a living and a reputation for being one of Britain’s most loved journalists. He holds nothing back and presents us with equally hilarious, harrowing and horrifying tales of his childhood, his education, his unemployment, his art, his drinking, his father, his brother and, occasionally, his mother, his wives, his children, his journalism and, most evocatively, his love of the English language.
His death, in 2016, left a gaping and heart breaking hole in British newspapers, meaning we will never be able to read another piece by him again. However, upon reading this memoir and another book of his (Letters to America), I will endeavour to read every word he has written previously, such is his everlasting magic ❤️📚
