About the book
This is Nigel Slater‘s truly extraordinary story of his childhood remembered through food. Nigel’s likes and dislikes, aversions and sweet-toothed weaknesses form a fascinating and often amusing backdrop to this incredibly moving and evocative memoir of childhood, adolescence and sexual awakening.

Mixed reviews within the group. Generally readers thought it was sad and that slater was obsessive about food and that the book was a release for emotions. Some thought it humorous and entertaining, other were irritated by the lack of chronological order of events.
