Product description


'Gillies has written a wonderful book, packed with the authentic voices of the past. What might in other hands have been a rather depressing read becomes, thanks to her careful touch, a witty yet moving exploration into Britain and Britishness at its blundering, heroic best.' (The Mail on Sunday)

'A brilliant book and will be enjoyed by people from every generation' (Tony Benn)

'This is the best kind of social history... a feast' (Margaret Forster)


...diligent, vivid and stirring... Her book is perceptive without being over-analytical, colourful without being overegged... I was gripped, exhilarated and moved by it. (Sunday Telegraph)

Fascinating and well-researched (Independent on Sunday)

... not just an accomplished biography, but a riveting slice of social history. (Mail on Sunday)

A vivid evocation of an era... one can almost smell the mixture of smoke, beer, winkles and champagne. (Times Literary Supplement)

A first-rate story about a remarkable woman (Edwina Currie, New Statesman)

There have been several biographies [of Marie Lloyd], but Midge Gillies' is the most wide-ranging and thoroughly researched. It is also the best. (Sunday Telegraph)

Book Description

A brilliant evocation by an acclaimed historical biographer of what it was really like to live in a Britain in the shadow of Nazi invasion.
