The life of John Keeman unfolds in the shadow of the Finnieston crane. From growing up in a Glasgow little remembered, through a diverse slew of careers, and into some of his most personal moments – both joyful and painful. With a voice equal parts wry and candid, John tells his anecdotally-rich story; indeed, not everyone, for instance, can say that they’ve literally sent Eartha Kitt flying.
John’s book is a powerful argument in the defence of collective support and strength, and a railing against the recent dismantling of almost all elements that provided that collective support to the poorest and most vulnerable members of our society.
