Summary Î Little Wilson and Big God The First Part of the Confession 102 The first volume of the two volume autobiographyIn an extraordinarily candid book of confessions Anthony Burgess tells the story of a disaffected Manchest. An extraordinary autobiography Prior to reading this the only other book I d read by Anthony Burgess was A Clockwork Orange I was inspired to read this book having come across a short extract photocopied and framed on the wall of The Wheatsheaf pub in Rathbone Place London Anthony Burgess was once a customer and he was describing the era in the 1940s when both he and Julian Maclaren Ross were regulars As a great admirer of Julian Maclaren Ross it was a desire to read this particular section probably only six or seven pages in total that prompted me to read it I should add that Burgess was gratifyingly complimentary about the work of Maclaren Ross and brings that era beautifully to lifeLittle Wilson and Big God is only the first part of a two part biography and covers the 42 years from Burgess s birth in 1917 to 1959 when his time as teacher and education officer in Malaya and Brunei came to an end and he decided to devote himself to writing full time believing he only had a year to liveBurgess was clearly very bright and something of a polymath He taught himself languages and wrote classical music in addition to gaining scholarships and doing well at school Despite this he was also something of a slacker as a young man drifting through the war and then into teaching in Malaya and Brunei He and his wife had an open relationship from the off and he appears to be very honest about his conduct which was freuently drunken and idiosyncratic He has a trove of great memoriesI found the whole book engrossing as he vividly recreated the Manchester of his boyhood life in the army during the war with all its attendant pettiness and absurdities and his various eccentricities and onto ever outrageous behaviour as an observant if unorthodox expat during the fag end of British colonialismHis writing style is flamboyant and sophisticated and reuired a few stops to consult the dictionary and I felt I was in the hands of a great writer at the top of his game I eagerly anticipate the second part You ve Had Your Time I have also bought The Complete Enderby too This feels like the start of a beautiful relationship55
