A unique and nostalgic coming- of-age memoir that is set against the backdrop of the 1960s and '70s British music scene A star-struck, naive 17-year-old country bumpkin leaves her Mum, her cat, her budgie and her 16-foot caravan home in Botley and catches a coach to a near-mythical land London and the Swinging '60s. Days later, mascara running, itching in her prickly suit, stammering from shyness, she turns up for a job interview with the UK's first ever pop magazine, Fab. On the strength of a letter she had invented, she is miraculously hired and soon finds herself living her dream as a music journalist.

After eight years of pop fan heaven and hell, Judith Wills returned to the country where she became Britain's bestselling diet, food and health writer.
