Paul Arnott is a radio, television and film producer and has written many plays. Though an admirer of all manner of cakes he is happiest in the world of mass manufactured confection. He will not pass a new cake product without trying it.
'This is a lovely book - Arnott has written a story that is by turns thoughtful and comforting, and nostalgic as hell.' -- William Leith, Guardian 'Arnott is adept at telling wonderful stories, but it's his warm, affectionate take on growing up, and out, that makes this such a lovely book...I was won over by the sweetness of it all.' -- Independent on Sunday 'A nostalgic sugarfest. Arnott writes extremely well, icing his prose with subtle, ironic humour...A light, funny, informative, highly enjoyable confection that offers much instant gratification. Enjoy' -- Daily Mail 'If T.S.Eliot's life was measured out in coffee spoons, Paul Arnott's has been punctuated by bars of dairy milk chocolate and Mr Kipling's exceedingly calorific cakes. His sweet, funny, sugar-coated memoir is light as a fairy cake.' -- The Times
