"Utterly rancid. I loved it."

Stewart Home

"Hill's many notable gifts as a writer include his narrative economy, his honesty and his pin point clarity. This is mordant, touching and — uniquely for a work of autobiography — entirely without vanity."

Jim Crace

"Charlie Hill is the chronicler Birmingham needs. Clear-eyed and sharply written, this a memoir — a set of poetic postcards, really — which offers a kaleidoscope of the past, a history of Charlie and of the city itself. It never strays into nostalgia or cosiness, but rather offers the reader glittering bright glimpses of the eighties, nineties and noughties."

Natalie Haynes, novelist, broadcaster and Brummie

"Hilariously written with a breathtaking precision and economy."
