About the Author

Jonathan Meades's most recent book 'Museum Without Walls' was selected as a book of the year by seven critics. He has since published a box of photos in postcard form, 'Pidgin Snaps'. His new films 'Concrete Poetry' are in praise of brutalist architecture and will be transmitted on BBC4 in March 2014.

Reviews

'By far the best picture of the 1950s I have read' George Walden, The Times

'A sulphurously brilliant alphabetical stroll through the seamier byways of the author's youth in post-war Salisbury' Jane Shilling, Evening Standard, Books of the Year

'A radiant account of Britain getting itself together' Kathryn Hughes, BBC Radio 4, Books of the Year

'An Encyclopaedia of Myself is a corrective - an anti-misery memoir' Stuart Jeffries. Guardian

'Meades vividly conjures a vanished world of Cracker Barrel cheese adverts, Aertex shirts and 'Johnny Remember Me' on the airwaves ... He is a very great prose stylist, with a dandy's delight in the sound and feel of words, and we are lucky to have him.' Ian Thomson, Spectator
