Thinly Disguised Autobiography by James Delingpole
This is the book that tells you like it is and like it was.Wearing the terrible clothes and awful hair known as eighties 'style', Josh starts his first year at Oxford bursting with hopes, ambitions and ludicrously unrealistic expectations. Thinly Disguised Autobiography is the story of his rude awakening, from the sleaze of Fleet Street to the terror of the LA riots, from clubbing at the Wag to slumming it at Glastonbury, from Oxford to London via Venice, Spetses, Laguna Beach and Bromsgrove: the highs, the lows, the snobbery, rejection, bitterness and disappointment. Plus copious quantities of drugs - and even a tiny bit of romance.
