Description: Nigel Cameron directs a Washington think tank that engages technology and the future. But in this memoir he looks back. Writing here with his grandchildren in mind, he draws sketches of his childhood in the Britain of the 1950s and 1960s - mostly in Yorkshire around Ilkley and Bradford. Sometimes they are hilarious, sometimes deeply sad. He recalls family, friends, and what it was to grow up a boy in a world that already seems far-off. And he does so mindful of Faulkner's lapidary insight, that "The past is never dead. It's not even past."
