Waterstones Says

A funny and heart-warming love letter to childhood, family and growing up, Till the Cows Come Home is Sara Cox's wonderfully written, funny coming of age memoir of growing up in 1980s Lancashire. This funny, big-hearted, often moving telling of Cox's semi rural upbringing is not what you'd expect from the original ladette, and one of radio's most enduring and well loved presenters.

A funny and heart-warming love letter to childhood, family and growing up,Till the Cows Come Home is DJ and TV presenter Sara Cox's wonderfully written, funny coming of age memoir of growing up in 1980s Lancashire.

The youngest of five siblings, Sara grew up on her father's cattle farm surrounded by dogs, cows, horses, fields and lots of 'cack'. The lanky kid sister - half girl, half forehead - a nuisance to the older kids, the farm was her very own dangerous adventure playground, 'a Bolton version of Narnia'.

Her writing conjures up a time of wagon rides and haymaking and agricultural shows, alongside chain smoking pensioners, cabaret nights at the Conservative club and benign parenting. Sara's love of family, of the animals and the people around them shines through on every page. Unforgettable characters are lovingly and expertly drawn bringing to life a time and place.

Sara later divided her childhood days between the beloved farm and the pub she lived above with her mother, these early experiences of freedom and adventure came to be the perfect training ground for later life.

This funny, big-hearted and often moving telling of Sara Cox's semi rural upbringing is not what you'd expect from the original ladette, and one of radio's most enduring and well loved presenters.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Cox is a natural storyteller... she brings that authentic voice to bear in her memoir. The tone is so intimate, chatty and friendly, so you feel as though she could be sitting next to you, in a cafe or a pub, as she regales you with stories of her youth.' - Daily Express

'An endearing, engaging and very funny coming-of-age memoir.' - Mirror

'I loved it!' - Lynda La Plante

“Funny and moving”

I’ve been aware of Sara Cox from The Girlie Show onwards, though I didn’t really appreciate her talents until she moved to Radio 2 and now I’m a real fan. This memoir, covering the first twenty years of her life... More
