    MOBI Adam Mars-Jones · Kid Gloves Epub á · gloves mobile, Kid Gloves EpubMehYes he writes well at times and tells chucklesome anecdotes I read it from from front page to last with some enjoyment It was like half listening to a Radio 4 'amusing' documentary about a minor figure in public lifeMy problem is that there are probably hundreds of better written riveting accounts of families rotting away in publishers' slush piles The difference? They were written by ordinary people without the 'golden ticket' of a public school and Oxbridge education Mr Mars Jones like so many recipients of establishment privilege doesn't even appear to know that the way the world works for him doesn't for the rest of usHe writes his amusing family vignette calls up a publisher friend perhaps they went to the same college and next thing there's his advance 'old chap' with a reuest to 'tidy it up bit here and there' and a promise of putting together a very nice little coffee table edition on a special Penguin imprint called Particular BooksLike I said at the s

    MOBI Adam Mars-Jones · Kid Gloves Epub á · gloves mobile, Kid Gloves EpubThis memoir of his high court judge father promises than it delivers There are plenty of entertaining anecdotes mainly about his father’s involvement with some famous court cases It’s also fascinating in the insights it gives to living and growing up in the strange enclosed world of Grays Inn But it becomes a rather slow build up to the drama of Adam Mars Jones coming out as gay

    MOBI Adam Mars-Jones · Kid Gloves Epub á · gloves mobile, Kid Gloves EpubSubtitled ‘A Voyage Round My Father’ borrowing from John Mortimer’s memorable biography this is a subtle and charming memoir from one of Britain’s leading gay writers William Mars Jones was a ueens Counsel a Knight and a High Court Judge As a father he was somewhat Victorian not touchy feely like today’s dads up to and including Prince William not noted for humour generous with criticism than praise He was also homophobic making him a less than ideal parent for Adam The process by which he came to terms with his son’s homosexuality was a slow one helped to a considerable degree by the onset of dementia Ironically it was the gay son

    MOBI Adam Mars-Jones · Kid Gloves Epub á · gloves mobile, Kid Gloves EpubIn his memoir KID GLOVES A VOYAGE AROUND MY FATHER Adam Mars Jones cuts his poor father very little slack When his dad expresses condolences albeit in a clumsy fashion his son finds fault with the wording When Mars Jones senior laments his own failure to be demonstrative and tactile with his children the son remains unimpressed And when the father finally comes to an accommodation with his son's sexuality the latter reacts with irritation and scepticism I know that I would welcome any apology from my father but sadly he is inherently incapable of taking responsibility for anything Having said all that I really enjoyed the book The author is

    MOBI Adam Mars-Jones · Kid Gloves Epub á · gloves mobile, Kid Gloves EpubFantastic first 65 pages well written very funny and very U English His father's proud Welsh background aside the latter description fits both father the judge and son the writer Of his ham fisted piano playing I remember him inspecting the sheet music when I was about thirteen and asking politely what the marking ' pp' meant 'It means very uietly indeed'

    MOBI Adam Mars-Jones · Kid Gloves Epub á · gloves mobile, Kid Gloves EpubAn interesting memoir that peters out a bit but beautifully written for the most part Some very good anecdotes and the curiosity of living at Gray's Inn Reconciling his father to Adam's gayness is a large part of the book and winning his acceptance is ultimately an anticlimax and even disappointment
