Books with a Laugh

This is my autobiography, written with candour and a good helping of wit tracing my life through choirboy days, school and university. Encounters with the famous and 'infamous' and ending with life in a Spanish village with the dubious pleasures of altercations with the wicked over my beloved Steinway grand piano. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I have enjoyed writing it.


For years it was generally considered by our venerable elders that no one should publish an autobiography until he or she is ready to drop dead. How times have changed. Yet in my own case, the original 'decency' probably applies. In fact, not so long ago a rumour went round the Spanish coastal town where I had resided for many moons that I had indeed fallen off my proverbial perch. When I suddenly appeared in the doorway of the English newsagent in the street where I had owned a piano bar, the girl behind the counter turned ashen white and nearly dropped the paper she was about to sell to an innocent customer.


'I've just come off the cross,' I brightly announced in Jewish mimicry. 'A little bit of blood.., but nothing too serious.'


She smiled awkwardly at my tasteless remarks, though I suspect she was glad I actually bought a paper and gave her the correct money - if only to convince her I was real and not an overly playful apparition. Just as well I had already written part of my story, I thought, since one day my passing will no longer be mere rumour.


 

   

Professional Reviews

My Steinway Blues
It's a must!
This is a truly well written, funny, sometimes sad book but above all, one of the best reads I've had in a long time. Mr Sharp's life is full of ups and downs but never a dull moment. Kept me enthralled and wanting more. I can highly recommend it.

My Steinway Blues
This is a super read about Mr. Sharp's adventures as he sails through his colourful life. It is a real story that doesn't hold back because of unnecessary political correctness. He is a gifted story teller and whilst there is the occasional sad or poignant moment, in the vast majority of the book you find yourself smiling and laughing. His descriptions are so imaginative you cannot help but see yourself sitting beside him as the book unfolds.

Reader Reviews for "My Steinway Blues"

Reviewed by Terry Joyes 10/25/2011
Hello Tony. I must purchase a copy of Steinway for my next holiday in February. Meanwhile, some sad news. Barry Paine died suddenly on 10 October. His funeral was today in Bristol. There will be a subsequent announcement of a Commemorative Service.
Stay well.
Terry Joyes
