One of the most liked and respected members of the Blair government, the former Home Secretary and current MP for West Hull and Hessle Alan Johnson found a devoted readership with the first volume of his memoirs, This Boy. The sequel takes up the story in 1969, as the author, now a husband and father, is working 12-hour shifts as a postman in Slough. The book paints a vivid picture of 1970s England, with its beer, bingo, cribbage and industrial unrest.
