Pete Fowler’s picaresque memoir of schooldays and his musical awakening. A story of sex, trains, death and rock’n’roll.
Almost Grown print edition is exclusively available from this website.
Pete Fowler has been a writer, lecturer, university professor, railway enthusiast, question-setter for Johnny Walker’s Radio One quiz, Pop the Question, and very nearly a rock star. Almost Grown opens with a brush with death and proceeds to explore the author’s awakening to life, in the Fifties and early Sixties, through the medium of music. It ends with an actual death. All in all, the story of a journey of self-discovery to a rock’n’roll soundtrack, by turns funny, moving and insightful. Everyone will benefit from sharing that journey.
