About the book

You can still do a perfect Elvis sneer, believing that it thrills the ladies. You are one of the few people that can distinguish the balls in snooker on a black and white TV screen. Do you remember when Elvis first ‘entered the building’, dancing to Doowop in the music halls and watching Muffin the Mule and the Queen’s Coronation on a tiny black and white television set? If so, pin up your Marilyn Monroe poster, shake off your Teddy Boy jacket and be whisked back to the fabulous fifties to discover if you are a true baby boomer.
