 Remind Me to Smile The Life and Times of a Teenage  Numanoid 


 
Remember a world once populated by Betamax, Fine Fare, Kenny Everett and Gary Numan? Then prepare to be transported back in time and be very amused indeed…
 
Back in the dim and distant days of 1977 Martin Downham was turning into the archetypal, stroppy, know-it-all teenager – angry for no good reason, rude, insolent, indolent, bone-idle and rebellious. A lengthy spell of destructive adolescence beckoned but ‘life’ had other plans. Remind Me to Smile is his mostly hilarious and often touching story.
 
Remind Me to Smile is a novel packed full of cultural and pop music-related nostalgia for the 1970s and 80s. Martin Downham’s memoir is witty, irreverent, calamitous and heartwarming. Fans of Gary Numan will identify with Martin’s story as the British electro-pop star looms over the book as an ever present and strangely reassuring spectre.
