Teenage Kicks and Tatey Bread – What Paperboy Did Next
Shankill Road, Belfast, 1977. The King is dead – and even Big Duff, the hardest loyalist hard man on the whole estate has been seen to shed a tear.
Tony Macaulay has just been appointed breadboy in the last Ormo Mini Shop in the world, a promotion from his previous role as a paperboy. The Bee Gees fill the airwaves, there’s Smash and fishfingers on the table for tea, and Tony’s love of peace and pets is soon rivalled by his interest in parallel universes and punk … and girls, especially gorgeous Judy Carlton, who sits opposite him in Chemistry.
Guaranteed to bring back a flood of childhood memories, this wonderful memoir is touching, warm and laugh-out-loud funny, and steeped in the atmosphere of the 1970s.

When Breadboy Tony Macaulay was growing up on the Shankill in the 70s, the Troubles were ever-present and times were hard. But with ABBA on the radio, a job in the Ormo mini shop, and Judy Carlton in his heart, Breadboy isn’t letting anything get him down.
