The Boy Who Loved Books by John Sutherland

The boy who loved books is the story of one man’s often desperate, love affair with reading matter, with drink and with an adored, but absent parent. Books in many ways changed John’s life, propelling him to university, and sustaining him in the dark times that were to come. It is also a personal account of the shifting twentieth century and the profound changes that shook society, as well as what it was like to be a grammar-school boy, a national service man, and a redbrick graduate during this period. 

The Boy Who Loved Books: a memoir, by John Sutherland, published by John Murray Publishers in 2007, ISBN: 978-0-7195-6431-4
