Review:

"These are wonderful images, showing just how revealing the lives of ordinary people, doing day-to-day things can be. They are glimpses of a country in doubt, sometimes in pain, but full of an indomitable spirit."  —Michael Palin, comedian, actor, writer, and television presenter

"The photographs of Chris Steele-Perkins capture something peculiarly English, or peculiar in the English."  —Nicholas Blincoe, author, critic, and screenwriter

"Unique style pours from every page."  —Amateur Photographer



"A thought-provoking and emotional collection of images which capture the beauty, the hardships, and the struggles of a by-gone era. They gave me faith that we will continue on our journey towards becoming a more tolerant, accepting, and inclusive society"  —Sandra Gregory, author, Forget You Had a Daughter

"This marvellous book brings all the memories, the atmosphere and different episodes of my life racing back."  —Gerry Cottle, English showman and owner,  Wooky Hole



"The controlled, steadily conventional shape of pictures is vital: viewpoints, diagonals, vanishing points, the choreography of limbs and the flattening of perspective make for faultlessly polished and often poetic pictures."  —David Lee, Ag Magazine

"Captures the little triumphs and larger miseries of the lives of ordinary people . . . the poor and the upwardly mobile, the idle and the abandoned."  — Picture Book of the Week section, New Statesman Magazine

"Mixed up, happy, sad, memoryislandimagebook, no.1"  —Damon Albarn, singer-songwriter and record producer
