Rate this book
"Romantic and bitter-sweet, this collection traces my journey through school and university to life in the real world beyond."

Martin Baker was born in Liverpool in 1961 and attended West Derby Comprehensive between 1972 and 1979. Four years later he graduated from the University of Bradford with some great friends and a first class honours degree in pharmacy. He moved to London and began a PhD which he never got round to completing. He now lives in Newcastle upon Tyne with his family and works in the IT services industry, where he spends most days dreaming of more creative employment. This is his first published collection.
