The book is autobiographical in nature, concentrating on Terry’s professional
life as a player of the French horn. You will also find some information
about the various places in which Terry and his wife have set up home.
There is very little about school life, although Terry gives credit to
his sixth form teachers J.B. Davies (French), and Garfield Griffiths (English Literature).
