John Andrews is the fourth child of an Anglo-Irish army family with severe religious hang-ups. Until its recent demise he was the marketing manager for the nefarious Creation Records, home of Oasis, Primal Scream and many others. In the eyes of the twentynothing and thirtysomething working world he was as hip as they come. He lived the lifestyle of a young, go-getting record executive for thirteen years without a break. Along the way he went through many rites of passage. But the most profound of these was the death of his father in 1992. His death changed John overnight. At the time he did not think there was anything left unsaid between them but as the years progressed he realised that there was something left undone. John began an subconscious search for these abandoned threads. In that year he began to fish again ...John Andrews' haunting prose describes his search to come to terms with the loss of his father. Taking the reader on his personal odyssey, with travels to Skye, Dublin and Cuba. For All Those Left Behind is a deeply moving memoir and a paean to the redemptive powers of the tranquillity and joys of fishing.
