People question me how come i am nonetheless alive, and that i have no idea what to claim. while i used to be starting to be up, if you'll have placed me up opposed to a wall with the opposite little ones from my road and requested me which one in every of us used to be gonna make it to the age of sixty, which certainly one of us might prove with 5 youngsters and 4 grandkids and homes in Buckinghamshire and Beverly Hills, i would not have positioned cash on me, no f**king means. yet the following i'm: able to inform my tale, in my very own phrases, for the 1st time.

A lot of it ain't gonna be lovely. i have performed a few undesirable issues in my time. i have continuously been attracted to the darkish aspect, me. yet I ain't the devil. i am simply John Osbourne: a working-class child from Aston, who hand over his task within the manufacturing facility and went trying to find a superb time."
