I’m Not Like Everybody Else



Here’s a book I’m thinking of buying, after reading this review in The Spectator. (I got the link from Liberal England.) I’ve always been a fan of The Kinks. As I’ve got older and the sixties have become history, I’ve been amazed that someone as young as Ray Davies was then could have such an acute sense of a working-class world that was vanishing and write so nostalgically about it. Autumn Almanac and Shangri-La are still favourite songs of mine.
