Please, Mr Postman.pdf
Born in condemned housing in West London in 1950, with no heating, no electricity and no running water, Alan Johnson did not have the easiest start in life. But by the age of 18, he was married, a father and working as a postman in Slough. This sequel to Alan's bestselling memoir This Boy, describes the next period in Alan's life with every bit as much honesty, humour and emotional impact as his bestselling debut. Please, Mr Postman paints a vivid picture of a bygone era - Britain in the 1970s was a very different country to the one we know today - and reveals another fascinating chapter in the life of one of our best loved public figures.
