In his first book, A Vintage Port, John Brown recalled his early life in Greenock and Port Glasgow – those twin towns clinging to the south bank of the River Clyde – reminiscing about his childhood and early days in Port Glasgow.
Now, in A Case of Export, John continues his story.
Education at Greenock Academy affords him greater opportunities, not only in education but also social activities. The many friends he makes there – fellow students, teachers and ministers – will greatly influenced his subsequent career.
University follows at a time when the computer age is dawning.
The family move to the south of England – opening up job opportunities for both father and son.
After a successful career in electronics, John returns to Scotland, always remembering the humour and way of life of his hometowns even though the twenty-first century has brought great change.
