Magic Moments

Author(s): John Sutherland

Writing & Reading

In a most original memoir John Sutherland looks at the books (and a few films, songs and other things) which have shaped his life - "Wind in the Willows" and "Fanny Hill", "Room at the Top" and Perry Como, the first Randy Turpin/Sugar Ray Robinson fight of 1951, "On the Waterfront" and John Banville...'Books, films, music and landscapes mean different things at different times of our lives. We consume them and, mysteriously, they define us at the moment of that consumption.' As he traces the random growth of an odd mind through time, John Sutherland's moments are moving, funny and sharply realised, offering insights we will all instantly recognise and share.
