With both poignancy and humor, Machell shares his search to locate his long-lost father, their emotional first meeting in America, and the dramatic twist that left him and all around him in a state of shock.
Why I wrote the bookFor many years I'd contemplated writing an abridged version of my life story. I intended it to cover a certain aspect of my life that I believed would be totally unique and compelling reading for my children and grandchildren.
As I began putting pen to paper, I realised that my story could well have a great deal of appeal to other readers. As a consequence of this and with the encouragement of my wife and children, I decided to widen the scope of the book to include a broader overview of my childhood.
My aim was to highlight the often sad, but sometimes hilarious experiences of a small boy growing up in a slum during the austere years of post-war Britain. Judging by the many five star reviews my book's received on Amazon, I think I must have succeeded.
The following pages cover the synopsis, the author biography and some photos from the book. I hope you enjoy reading my special story.
"Each chapter seemed better than the chapter before.
It was a book you'll have trouble putting down."
