In one of the most extraordinary memoirs of recent years, Lorna Sage brings alive her girlhood in post-war provincial Britain.
A literary memoir, which illuminates the lives of three generations of women. It talks about the author's eccentric family and somewhat bizarre upbringing in the small town of Hanmer, on the border between Wales and Shropshire.
‘A wonderful book. Women need this kind of book but perhaps men need it more, to give the sort of understanding which we still lack of how girls actually grow up.’ Margaret Forster
