Odd Boy Out




Written for his grandchildren, this is Gyles Brandreth's story of his time and life lessons from his childhood, to young love, to Romeo and Juliet, to The Sex Pistols

Gyles Brandreth has written many brilliant books. Most are witty, some are gossipy and original, some are life affirming, others fall into the completely hilarious and unexpected, but all, access the secrets of the human heart and captivate his wide and varied readership. He's written glitteringly royal biographies, a Victorian murder mystery series, starring none other than literary legend, Oscar Wilde, a dazzling array of self-help and lifestyle books, odes the written word, punctuation, poetry or otherwise, and even a hugely popular novelty jumper, knitting book.

But, never has he written about himself. For the very first time Gyles Brandreth writes the story of his time, for his grandchildren, about childhood, family, nostalgia, ambition, young love, school, university, The Sex Pistols, TS Eliot and much, much more.
