Richard Alexander's My Life On Request - Pieces of Me is an account of the author's early years growing up in the Home Counties during the fifties. This is a poignant and personal account of post war boyhood surrounded by three brothers and a much younger sister, although Penny does not feature hugely in this masculine take on family life. Enjoyable, funny, sad and touching in equal measure, My Life On Request - Pieces of Me will resonate with many readers as the journey from Richard the young child through to adulthood, is explored and described via a mechanism of different and powerful influences and cameos of life events. It is a social and historical commentary on changing family life as the fifties gives way to the sixties, a truly fascinating time to be alive.
After retiring from 47 successful years in business, Richard Alexander has taken the time to reflect on his past, origins and childhood. Truthfully recording memories of people, events or happenings, some funny, others scary, some very personal but all building the foundations for the person he is today.
