I 'm downloading the follow-up as I type

This is welll-written, humorous and clever social commentary on 70's UK, in the best tradition of Brit literary comedy but with postmodern twists. As I get older, I tend to neglect younger authors, but this guy unites the best of new and old traditions. I thank Audible for having this on sale so often that I finally bought it.

A 'series' is my guess

This had been on my wish list for a long time. Colin Buchannan read well. The style of writing was fine. As 'adolescents growing up' in the 70's, the subject was pretty good.
I expect I am meant to purchase another book to find out what happens to Ben. The story was incomplete.
The story starts with two young adult children talking about family. Most of the novel is about Uncle Ben, his family, school and friends. It ends with the young adults having a meal. What happened to Ben!!
" Now it is your turn" ( to tell a story) simply annoys me. No doubt the next novel has another focus, and no doubt Ben will reappear. Even in a series I do like each story to stand alone as a novel.
Three stars is probably too many, yet Buchannan's reading was good throughout and it was the author who annoyed me with the ending.
