‘A fascinating account of Joe Hucknall’s upbringing in working class Barrow, and his struggles as a gay man in post-war Britain. Very enjoyable and highly readable. It’s a pity Hucknall took so long to pursue his teenage ambition to become a writer.’ – Michael Crick, Biographer & Political Correspondent for Channel Four News.

‘A revelation and a thoroughly enjoyable read.’ – Mick Hucknall, Singer and Songwriter.
