Description

Broken Geek by Pete Paphides

This is the extraordinary, moving and funny coming-of-age memoir about identity, chip shops and pop songs from the music journalist and radio presenter. Pete's parents moved from Cyprus to Birmingham in the 1960s where with no money and only a little bit of English they opened a fish-and-chip shop. He recounts how he found refuge in the bittersweet embrace of pop songs, thanks to Top of the Pops and Dial-A-Disc, the music providing the safety net he needed to protect him from the tensions of his home life.
