Phew, someone’s posted a slightly-less-than-glowing Amazon review of Where Have All the Good Times Gone? I can’t find fault with anything that the reviewer says. It was my first book and I tended to throw in everything bar the kitchen sink. Five years after it came out, even I find it a bit heavy-going. So yes, lots of trees, not enough wood (Hur hur). That said, the ‘confusing rapidity’ with which business names are introduced and dropped was semi-deliberate, reflecting the confusing rapidity with which it happened in the industry.
So, own up, is the reviewer a reader of this blog or the real Mr G Reaper? It’s a bit too much of a coincidence for it to be a random punter.
