Playing Out: Swings and Roundabouts by [Lovell, Paul Douglas]I was over the moon when I found out that Paul had written another book. I’m a big fan of his previous memoir “Paulyanna” and I found this book just as good. Not surprisingly  it is somewhat different, dealing with a childhood rather than adult years. Although it is based on the author’s life, the book is written as a novel and narrated from a neutral perspective.
I was also brought up in the 1970ies and loved reading about the time. It took me back down memory lane, with many smiles along the way.
Paul (the character) ‘s life was often hard and love-less, something that comes through loud and clear, despite the otehrwise humorous and distant style.
His life is certainly fascinating for someone only ten years old and these memories are ones that many of us will enjoy sharing. There are some great reflections and beautiful nostalgic moments. A memoir not be missed.
