Remember Me

By

I knew Melvyn Bragg at Oxford; I left college the term before the action in Remember Me begins, so I cannot say authoritatively how much of the story is autobiographical and how much fiction. Bragg prefers to describe it as a novel based on personal experience. Obviously I found it fascinating, but I thought it fairer to ask somebody else to review it and I am pleased Janet Hancock agrees with my sentiments. However, I found that knowing the tragic outcome gave the book an extra power, like a novel set on the Titanic.

The ‘Sixties’ are only borderline historical, but if you are too young to remember what it was like to be a young professional starting your career and your family in this decade, then read Remember Me and you will understand our generation a little better.

Janet’s review is here.
