The Fifties Mystique isn’t published until 26 April, and so far I have been sent only my one, single copy. But review copies were sent out last week and the first printed reaction appears today in The Western Morning News. It’s a huge relief that it’s a kind one. Not that it sets the tone for other reviews (which might all be dire! ) but simply that it makes a very good start. Simon Parker’s words represent a weight off the author’s mind:
The Fifties Mystique is an extremely engaging read: revealing, touching, informative and occasionally comic.
