Some Luck - John BirdHamish Hamilton, 2002, Hardback in Dust Wrapper.
Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Gently bruised at the head of the spine and the top corners of the boards. Text complete, clean and tight but a little age-tanned at the margins.
Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “John Bird has changed the lives of countless people, but first of all he had to change his own. Here he turns his attention to his own past and traces his life from the slums of Notting Hill, through crime, vagrancy and homelessness, to redemption when he launched “The Big Issue”. This is an evocation of a life which could so easily have gone the other way, and also a great testament to the human ability to overcome adversity, when energy meets that rarer quality, opportunity.”
