He was born in the sixties, grew up in the seventies, became a man in the eighties and threw everything away in the twenty first century.
Yes, Mel Smith is just an ordinary guy.
His story starts in 2012, after he foolishly let his marriage and a happy family life slip away. Now, single and alone, he lives in his onebedded staff accommodation room, a room he has to call home.
Scrunched up on his overused, springladen bed, his fingers are poised, hovering over the keyboard. Mel is ready to share how he got to this stage in his life, to tell his memoirs, growing from boy to man and all that that it entailed.
Along the way, he meets an assortment of characters from family, friends and lovers, to complete strangers. But, of course, no story would be complete without a baddy added to the mix and Mel certainly meets his fair share of them. Throughout his life, he has a humorous journey of discovery, disappointments and adventure. It all starts in nineteen sixty four.
Melvyn, or Beanpole, as his mother would call him, is quite content using a nappy full of cabbageflavoured shit as a cushion, while sitting in a handmedown swing, wearing handme downclothes. Probably his sisters’. That’s how he remembers his early days; his very own swinging sixties.
In the hazy summer days of the seventies, as his hair becomes redder and freckles more noticeable, somehow he manages to get himself a girlfriend. The love affair is shortlived, his designer national health glasses putting a stop to that little romance. But all is not lost. Melvyn makes a new friend; Mitch, a goodlooking London lad. They become the best of friends and share many adventures as the years roll by.
In the eighties, and with his school days over, it is time, as a teenager, to go it alone and face the big wide world. Well, not quite alone, as Mitch tags along for a few more adventures, which include booze, women and sex and, more often than not, in that order.
Between the ages of eighteen...
