Up the Bumpy Lane

Up the Bumpy Lane: Hilarious Memoir, a “Kaleidoscope of Social History”, Remembers Rapidly-Evolving Post-WWII Britain 

Written with laser-sharp memory and side-splitting wit, Harridave Dutton’s ‘Up the Bumpy Lane’ tells the story of the UK’s stark social transitions from the 1940s to the 1960s, all through the eyes of the author (who was then a young man; not much so any more!). Both intimate and honest, the volume explores the social and technologi- cal changes that uprooted the lives of Brits across the country, intermingled with in- credibly personal vignettes from the author’s upbringing in Bristol. One critic recently wrote that Dutton’s story “...is the best book I've read in a long, long time! It is written with great knowledge of the post war years in England.”
