Godfrey Sayers has lived almost all his life on the north Norfolk coast and is a great local character. Until recently (he retired last year) Godfrey could reliably be found during the summer months in an old trailer parked on Blakeney Carnser car park, selling his very fine watercolour paintings of the area. But there's been much more to Godfrey's life than art: he's been a sailor, coastal defence volunteer, political activist and many other things. This book - part memoir, part record of the beautiful and sometimes desolate coast he loves, part platform for gripes and wistful sadness about the way the area has been changed by money and tourism - has been beautifully produced and does justice to the many images of Godfrey's paintings it contains. 
Many self-published memoirs tend towards the self-indulgent and shoddily produced; this book is neither and, having read it and loved it, I commend it and its author to your attention.
