The Yellow-Lighted Bookshop

The gift of a radio

Justin Webb’s childhood in the 1970s was far from ordinary. Between his mother’s un-diagnosed psychological problems, and his step-father’s untreated ones, life at home was dysfunctional at best. But with gun-wielding school masters and sub-standard living conditions, Quaker boarding school wasn’t much better. Candid, unsparing, and darkly funny, Justin Webb’s memoir is as much a portrait of a troubled era as it is the story of a dysfunctional childhood, shaping the urbane and successful radio presenter we know and love now.
