An English Baby Boomer: My Life and Times

By Neil G. M. Hall

Biography & memoir | Paperback, eBook


Who is Neil G. M. Hall? “The most unexpected journey can be right on your doorstep. Witty and deftly constructed, I much admire this true story of an adventurous and enterprising life” – Sir Ranulph Fiennes. With a life that epitomises the social history of Britain of the second half of the twentieth century – with all of its booms and busts – Neil Hall is an ‘everyman’ for the boomer generation. An adventurous enthusiasm for trying new things lands Hall in the midst of changing British culture: - Eccentric prep schools in the ‘50s - Marlborough College and the swinging ‘60s - The foundation of one of the first and best-known interior decorating retailers of the ‘70s - Booming financial services in Thatcher’s ‘80s - World travel and the bursting financial bubble of the ‘90s - And the energetic self-employment, start-up culture of the 21st century. Fun, funny and always honest, "An English Baby Boomer" examines, through a single life, where we have been, where we are and wonders where we may be headed.
