Description

'I have not missed them yet I want to see them. I feel no nostalgia - yet I want to talk to them again. What did they think of me then? Do they ever think of me now? What have they become? What do they think of what I have become? I like to think I am transformed. Am I? Are they? I want to find those 35 children who were my classmates for five years. I want to find out all about them.' Who amongst us has never wondered about their schoolmates the way Robert Crampton has? But the 36-year-old TIMES journalist decided to do something about it; in classic 'Where are they now?' style, he has tracked down every member of his Hull comprehensive school o'level class, resulting in a witty and searching look at thirty-somethings in the year 2001. In the process, he draws on a cross-section of British society and exposes the successes and failures of our educational system, those who are able to advance on the social ladder and fall into a good career, as well as those who fall on hard times or even into a life of crime. Along the way he uncovers lots of sport, some sex, and a certain amount of violence; designer labels and romance and lots of good cracks. And of course, it's all true.
