Woderfully funny and moving,
This review is from: The Pineapple King of Jarrow and Other Stories (Paperback)
This is a really wonderfully written book, full of love, tenderness and very funny stories. It tells the tale of young Lecky (the author) and his Uncle Freddie, set in the great depression of the 1930's in Jarrow. It expresses the hardships of the many, the ruthlessness of a few, and an incredible bond between family members. It shows the spirit of people, and the strength of this family, through adversity. We all need an Uncle Freddie to show us the way when we're young... even when we're not so young.
You will end this book smiling and wanting to read it again.
