Writer, musician and cheesemaker Alex James is bestknown as the bass player in Blur, a time he chronicled in his acclaimed first book Bit of a Blur. Alex James lives on a farm in Oxfordshire with his wife and five children. He writes a weekly column on all things food for the Sun, as well a regular column on farm and family life for the Sunday Telegraph.
'James's prose is clean and poetic. His childlike wonder at the simple things - from herons to heaps of rubble - can be infectious'. Daily Telegraph 'A joy to read. Prose flows and weaves and curls itself into pleasing rhythms...(Alex James) can write like a god.' Spectator 'The upbeat tone matches that of his Blur-era autobiography A Bit Of A Blur, treating his downsize from rock heart-throb to cockerel-throttling country gent as if cheese contests were Britpop orgies. Riding bikes, the smell of berry bushes, piles of cow dung: all brilliant' NME
