'...a sheer delight, and about as different from a Jack Higgins thriller as any novel could be. Here, the only violence to be found is in the war between the sexes; the only intrigue is of the "will she or won't she" variety; and as for thrills - well, Oliver does find a few of those, in between learning to teach in a school that could have been a model for The Blackboard Jungle and trying to write his first novel - a suspense thriller.
Here is Higgin's own story, the memory novel of a naive young soldier's emergence into a world that had changed forever. A journey into our collective past, Memoirs of a Dance-Hall Romeo is richly nostalgic and vibrantly realistic entertainment.'
