The Countdown is On!

All Growed Up will be here before you know it! Check out the preview below to tide you over until you can get your hands on a copy.

‘It’s Belfast, 1982, and a seventeen-year-old boy wearing Hai Karate aftershave has an appointment with destiny. He is a real man now, so he is, and shaving twice a week. To follow his successful career as a breadboy, he aims to go where few people from the upper Shankill have boldly gone before: to university.’

All Growed Up is the funny and heart-warming sequel to Tony Macaulay’s memoirs Paperboy and Breadboy. It follows Tony as he leaves the Shankill for life as a student in Coleraine, where he discovers true love, sex, socialism and screen tests.

Touching, funny and nostalgic, All Growed Up will delight Tony’s many fans. It’s the book in which the retired paperboy finally grows up.

The memoir is currently available for preorder, and the book will be released on September 4th, 2014!
