This review is from: Union Street (Virago Modern Classics) (Paperback) (Paperback)
When you start reading, the prose is perfect, the dialogue so real you can see the people and their lives as if you are watching a play. If you have a lower working class upbringing from the north or south of england, the poverty will be easily recognised. The problems her characters face are real today as they were then.
This is writing of the highest quality and is a joy to read....
I'd like to thank Pat Barker for this great work.
