How did I get here? is a memoir of a young boy growing up in the 1960s/70s in North-East Scotland. That young boy grew up to be me, Gordon Craigie. I didn’t set out to write a humorous book, but apparently it is… which is a good thing. Inside you’ll find deeply philosophical/ridiculous gems such as:
“It may turn out to be a story of our times, those of us who straddle the cusp of baby boomers and Generation X. Or, it may not…”
“As I took my first faltering steps onto the surface it was clear that my Bambi-on-ice technique was never going to get me anywhere…”
If you enjoy Volume 1: Rebel without a clue! then, luckily for you there's now also Volume 2: Raging Against the Machine! which picks up where this one leaves off and proves conclusively that older doesn’t necessarily mean wiser! And if you don’t enjoy it… what’s wrong with you?
And so the story continues with Raging Against the Machine!
Readers said nice things about Rebel Without a Clue! such as:
“Great book – well written and funny”
“Really enjoyed having a pleasant, entertaining distraction from the chaos that is going on in the world right now. Many of your stories triggered memories of my own experiences”
“Enjoyed your memories from being a young boy to a man and all you experienced in between … looking forward to Volume 2”
How did I get here? – Volume 2: Raging Against the Machine! picks up where the first one left off and meanders through the 1980s/90s into the early years of this century – how scary does that sound? As I recall the ups and downs of adult life and career progression, I think I have indeed managed to prove conclusively that older doesn’t necessarily mean wiser! And there’s still Volume 3 to come… what’s not to like?
