Just Ignore Him [9781408713310]

(1 review) Write a Review

The story of a life built on sand. In the rain. 

In this compelling memoir, comedian and actor Alan Davies recalls his boyhood with vivid insight and devastating humour.

Shifting between his 1970s upbringing and his life today, Davies moves poignantly from innocence to experience to the clarity of hindsight, always with a keen sense of the absurd.

From sibling dynamics, to his voiceless, misunderstood progression through school, sexuality and humiliating 'accidents', Davies inhabits his younger mind with spectacular accuracy, sharply evoking an era when Green Shield Stamps, Bob-a-Job week and Whizzer & Chips loomed large, a bus fare was 2p - and children had little power in the face of adult motivation.

Here, there are often exquisitely tender recollections of the mother he lost at six years old, of a bereaved family struggling to find its way, and the kicks and confusion of adolescence.

Through even the joyous and innocent memories, the pain of Davies's lifelong grief and profound betrayal is unfiltered, searing and beautifully articulated. Just Ignore Him is not only an autobiography, it is a testament to a survivor's resilience and courage.


AUTHOR: Alan Davies is a comedian, writer and actor, best known for starring in the hit BBC series Jonathan Creek and his regular appearances as a panellist on QI.

    Just Ignore Him / Alan Davies

    Posted by The Happy Housewife on 18th Dec 2020

    Been longing to read this after seeing so many good reviews and the quote alone on the cover from Stephen Fry is a good enough recommendation for me. Going to save it for new year, once Christmas is over and we'll all probably be in lockdown again.
    I always turn initially to this website now when looking for books as their prices are extremely competitive and they offer free delivery. The books I've received so far have arrived promptly and in perfect condition, which is important to me as I often gift the items.
    Happy buyer :)
