Trompe l'oeil

I'd been wanting to read Maggie and Me, Damian Barr's memoir of growing up in the shadow of the Ravenscraig Steelworks. And I was thrilled with the trompe l'oeil dog-eared and tea stained cover...

But I soon realized all copies didn't look like mine.

So I got an ARC, through Royal Mail.

It's a great read, Damian growing up with a strange affinity for Margaret Thatcher, who changed this Scottish family's existence in myriad ways.
