Join writer and broadcaster Melvyn Bragg at HOME, as he celebrates the publication of his first ever memoir.
This is the tale of a boy who lived in a pub and expected to leave school at fifteen yet won a scholarship to Oxford. Derailed by a severe breakdown when he was thirteen, Melvyn will recall how he developed a passion for reading and study – though that didn’t stop him playing in a skiffle band or falling in love.
