Tales of a grandfather

by Brian Kitson | 14 December 2018
Category: European History
'I was born into a time you now study at school as history.' First conceived as a personal memoir to give his grandchildren - all born in the 1990s - some sense of what life was like two generations earlier, Brian Kitson's Tales of a Grandfather has a resonance beyond its familial origins. Readers can follow Brian's colourful progress from his earliest years to his mid-twenties, through a wartime childhood, disturbed family relationships, postwar Cambridge undergraduate life and National Service in Counter-Intelligence. Brian also discusses his great love of different kinds of music, including his unusual experiences as the pianist in a jazz ensemble. Written with the same detail, intelligence and wit as his previous book, Burberry Days (also published by Austin Macauley), Brian Kitson's Tales of a Grandfather is a fascinating portrait of a time, a family and a man.
