I’ve been lucky enough to have some very supportive publishers and some great people to work with when writing the books I’ve put out over the last few years. But the latest review of The Glory Glory Nights on Spurs fansite Dear Mr Levy has given me the same kind of warm glow I felt when I was told Hunter Davies had written a very complementary introduction the first book Adam Powley and I wrote, We Are Tottenham, way back in 2004.
I know it’s a Spurs site so it’s biased. I know that drawing attention to praise for your own work appears immodest. And yes, there’s a little bit of ego involved. But, truly, when people write stuff like this about the things I’ve worked on, it means a lot. It makes all the effort worth it, especially as there’s always a large element of love’s labours involved – so it’s good to know that’s not lost. I am very grateful and very touched.
