Description
In this "packed, provocative and masterly" book (Sebastian Faulks) are Anthony Burgess's candid confessions: he was seduced at the age of nine by an older woman; serving in Gibraltar in World War II he was thrown into jail on VE Day for calling Franco names; he once taught a group of Nazi socialites that the English equivalent of "heil" was "sod" and had them crying "Sod Hitler." Burgess's memory moves from Moss Side to Malaya, recalling time as an education officer in the tropics, his tempestuous first marriage, his struggles with Catholicism, and the beginning of his prolific writing life. Wise, self-deprecating and bristling with incident, this first-class memoir is "an unfailing literary pleasure" (NYTimes).
