Heard One Day serialised on radio four. Oh my god what an ending.
Still struggling though this. Whilst the book's getting more entertaining, his research is terrible. Having lived through this 20-year period as an adult, I can point out all the historical inaccuracies:
1 Minging/minger not in popular use until max 10 years ago, certainly not 1993.
2 'Middle-class' tattoos didn't take off until a few years ago.
3 'Mentalist' was coined by Steve Coogan in late 90s. Certainly not used in early 90s.
4 Misuse of the word 'sat' is a very recent (and annoying) phenomenon. It was generally used correctly in early 90s.
5 'Gangster' cool was not big in 1995.
6 Also wrong in mid-90s were big watches, titanium objects.
7 Young professional women didn't carry the 'obligatory' water bottle in 1994. That's the last six or seven years, too.
