About this deal

I can promise you Breadboy is like jumping into the TARDIS with Doctor Who and travelling back in time to Belfast in 1977. Following the smash-hit musical Paperboy that had 2 sell-out runs at the Lyric Theatre Belfast in 2019 and 2018, this new witty, heart-warming show will explore Tony Macaulay's second memoir Breadboy.

TONY Macaulay's first bestselling memoir Paperboy spawned a terrific musical with music by Duke Special and words by Andrew Doyle which had two sell-out runs in Belfast.He was raised at the top of the Shankill Road in West Belfast at the start of thirty-five years of “The Troubles” in Northern Ireland, an experience that has shaped his life. In cleanliness and purity Leslie was the complete opposite of my first employer, but he shared Oul’ Mac’s difficulties in the dental department. On that day, I was privileged to visit a local village to hear stories of reconciliation from perpetrators and survivors of the genocide. In 2016 Tony’s first three books were translated into Braille by prisoners in the Braille Unit in Maghaberry Prison.

There's A Place For Us streamed out and the cast's voices seemed most confident when singing about the Jets and the Sharks. He has spent the past 35 years working to build peace and reconciliation at home and abroad, working with hundreds of youth and community groups to break down barriers of mistrust, hatred and division. Macaulay says he hasn’t yet seen Kenneth Branagh’s semi-autobiographical film Belfast but is looking forward to watching it. He is now a regular speaker on Northern Ireland, peace building and creative writing at universities and colleges in Europe and the USA.

Additionally it gives an insight into what it was like to grow up in working class Belfast at the height of the troubles. On a busy day, or if there was a suspected hijacker on the street, it could reach speeds of up to 25 mph. 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. My mind often wandered towards more exciting preoccupations like music and movies and outer space and Judy Carlton.B. Yeats Society of New York invited Tony to present a reading of Paperboy in the National Arts Club as part of the 1st Irish Festival. Macaulay's equally insightful second autobiographical volume, Breadboy, has now become another slice of music theatre, premiered after a Covid delay at The Lyric Theatre, but partly because the material is more complicated, it hasn't translated so well. But after a very short time the repetition of the tune began to irritate me as much as Boney M singing ‘Ma Baker’ every half hour on Radio Luxembourg. And so refreshing to read of a loving, functional family doing their best to survive and thrive in such a bizarre time (as did mine!

My family were trying to keep us safe and I was trying to work out what it was all about, when all I was really interested in was my wee job, science fiction, Star Wars and girls. With Wesco’s iconic retro Americana styling, and their dedication to quality, the bread bin is both attractive and durable, with its coated steel body and chrome base sure to last you for years to come. Tony Macaulay has asserted his right under the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988 to be identified as the author of this work.

Have had a silver one of these for years - following a kitchen upgrade thought I'd brighten things a bit with a lime green one. The fizzy drinks could occasionally be problematic because they often exploded on opening due to all the movement going over potholes where buses had burnt, but most of the other merchandise was warm, fresh, inviting and relatively inert. The finish is superb, the colour not so sure of, label and box say New Silver but looks a little brownish, could just be reflecting its surroundings, to be given as a gift so hopefully they will like it. And the Troubles inevitably hang over proceedings, with 1977 the key year in which the narrative is set.
