Cowboy Snippets: Igoni Barret's childhood reading experiences



Igoni Barret was featured in the Guardian (UK) earlier this year and recalled his childhood reading experiences:

'For many years I only read whatever I found at home: my mother’s romance and detective and cowboy novels, and the motley books my absent father had left behind. Even the few books I borrowed from friends’ houses (and sometimes stole, like ER Braithwaite’s To Sir, With Love – sorry, Remi) usually belonged to their parents.'
