This review is from: Common Words and the Wandering Star: A Biographical Study of Culture and Social Change in the Life and Work of Writer Jack Common (1903-1968) (Paperback)
I rate this book very highly. It has been well researched and I found it an extremely interesting book, especially as Jack Common's friendship with Orwell is discussed. I feel that the author has brought Jack Common back to life in this book. The passion and dedication shown by Keith in his portrayal of history is stimulating and infectious.

5.0 out of 5 stars Haunting Memories of Old Newcastle, 13 Nov. 2011
This review is from: Common Words and the Wandering Star: A Biographical Study of Culture and Social Change in the Life and Work of Writer Jack Common (1903-1968) (Paperback)
I can recommend this book for anyone but particularly those who know North East England.
The descriptive element of working class tyneside where hope overcomes adversity warms the heart.

Mr Common, died too young, wrote too little, a lost genius.

Perhaps Tyneside's equivalent to John Kennedy Toole.

I loved it.

I am fascinated by Jack Common and having lived in Heaton can equate with how he felt, how he thought and the contents of his novels. This book is well worth having to get a comprehensive background of his life and times.
