Beloved broadcaster and writer Miles Kington's account of an endearingly eccentric childhood has everything - a lovable narrator, a mother who is constantly on her deathbed, a gadget-obsessed father and a flamboyantly theatrical older brother. SOMEONE LIKE ME is a collection of enchanting musings on life from the fringes of a sometimes roundabout, often perplexing but always entertaining adult world in which the incidents and accidents of dog training, borrowed lawnmowers, badminton, figs and unlikely brushes with the Catholic Church combine in the most original and laugh-out-loud funny book you'll have read in decades.

'charmingly skewed memoirs' -- Independent on Sunday 'A most engaging book... I suggest you ration yourself to three or four chapters a sitting. The fare is on the rich side' -- Spectator 'Kington is adept at evoking the small details of post-war life... SOMEONE LIKE ME is a souffle rather than a steak-and-kidney pudding: less sustaining...but agreeable all the same' -- Sunday Times 20051023 'SOMEONE LIKE ME may prove to be one of the autobiographies of the year, except I suspect that most of it is highly fictitious. A loving portrait of a gloriously eccentric family' -- Independent 20051023About the Author:
