    "Self indulgent and random"

    Stuffed full of nostalgic and personal minutiae, it descended into a disorganised miscellany of this and that from times gone by, jumping around and failing to hold my attention

    Story
    "Development of a writer"

    Apart from the excellent descriptions of a fascinating city, I found his struggle through painting and then a failed university diploma in architecture very moving. It is this part of the book that brought it alive for me. His eye for his beloved city may well have been aided by his 2 'failed' careers; it is full of lyricism and insight.
