Music hasn’t just accompanied Alan Johnson’s life, it’s been an integral part of it. ‘In My Life’ vividly transports us to the world of Dansettes and jukeboxes, smoky coffee shops and dingy dance halls. From Dylan to Bowie, Lonnie Donnegan to Springsteen and the Beatles, all of Alan’s favourites are here. But this isn’t just a book about music it adds a fourth dimension to the story of Alan Johnson the man.
Former Home Secretary Alan Johnson retired from politics in 2017. He has since written three award-winning childhood memoirs.
