I am on the third instalment of Alan Johnson's memoirs. The long and winding road. From childhood in the west London slums around Kensal Town in the 1050's, to being a Minister in the labour government. It is very well written and a great story of how from humble beginnings he rose to the top without ever forgetting his where he came from. I can recommend these books to anyone who likes auto biographies.
The first is called --This Boy
The second is called--Please Mr Postman
I'll look out for that one, I've read his first two which enjoyed very much. I could identify a lot of his early life as we had similar upbringings, only he was West London and I was East London.
