Hunter Davies is one of the most respected writers in the country.
THE GLORY GAME is a footballing classic still in print some 30 years since its original publication but Hunter is also a successful novelist and distinguished biographer, whose subjects include The Beatles, Wayne Rooney and Paul Gascoigne.
Now, though, he describes his own extraordinary life, from growing up on a Carlisle council estate in the 1950s and his student days at Durham to his introduction to Fleet Street, his enduring obsession with football and memorabilia, and the many fascinating characters he has met, interviewed and written about over the last 40 years.
It is also the intimate portrait of his marriage to teenage sweetheart Margaret Forster, herself a well-known novelist.
Full of wonderful observations, warm humour and colourful anecdote - a memoir to treasure.
