Dermot O'Leary charts his story, from school to The X Factor, through the songs that were playing at the key moment in his life. This is the story of Dermot's life so far, from growing up in semi rural Colchester with his Irish born parents, to landing one of the biggets jobs in television. Throughout this journey, music has been a constant companion: a best friend, confidant, a really annoying sibling, and at times a tormentor. Here Dermot shows that really it is the songs that choose you, not the other way round. These are the tracks that have a hold on us because they have become inextricably linked to the most important moments of our lives and spark the memories and stories that shape us. With a wonderful gift for storytelling Dermot describes with humour and brilliant detail what it was like to grow up a second generation Irishman in '70s England. The Pope, rebel songs and Irish dancing were all part of everyday life, along with the usual brand of chlidhood nostalgia, like endless summers, freshly cut grass and the occasional dead animal found in a ditch. Dermot's homelife was filled with music, which was to set the scene for the years ahead. From Irish folk singer Brendan Shine's "Catch Me If You Can" to The Smiths, Elbow, and Dermot's hero Bruce Springsteen, in Soundtrack to My Life Dermot shares with us his musical DNA. 1.

These final stories underscore what we’ll miss.... Johnson is best known for his writing about hard-luck cases - alcoholics, thieves, world-weary soldiers. But this final collection ranges up and down the class ladder; for Johnson, a sense of mortality and a struggle to make sense of our lives knew no demographic boundaries.” [Kirkus Reviews (starred review)]“An instant classic... A masterpiece of deep humanity and astonishing prose... It’s filled with Johns 1. Language: English. Narrator: Nick Offerman, Michael Shannon, Dermot Mulroney, Will Patton.
