Publisher's Summary

This is the story of Alex James’s transition from a leading light of the Britpop movement in the 1990s, to gentleman farmer, artisan cheese-maker and father of five. All Cheeses Great and Small is the follow-up memoir to Alex James's first book, Bit of a Blur, the story of his excessive pop star lifestyle during the nineties. But now Alex has grown up, fallen in love and got married. He has also fallen passionately for his new home, an enormous rambling farmhouse in the Cotswolds, set in two hundred acres of beautiful British countryside. The farm represents not just a new house for Alex, but also a new career.

As he breathes new life into the old farm he chances across an unexpected calling: making cheese. His cheeses, Blue Monday, Farleigh Wallop and Little Wallop have received widespread media interest and are now sold through many outlets.

The story culminates with an account of the triumphant reformation of Blur for Glastonbury 2009.

    "Lives in a house, a very big house in the country!"

    An everyday tale of country folk, and a middle-aged pop star adapting to the rural life. James' narration is sometime difficult to follow, often taking no account of punctuation - but that does not detract from his obvious passion for his farm and all things rural. A charming, gentle tale - well worth a listen!

    "from bass player to (accidental) life style guru"

    I've listened to many, many audio books but never felt compelled to write a reviw - until now. Beautifully written and narrated - the words flow, the images are conjured & life is good ! This could become a blueprint for living the dream..........
