"'Written to almost make you wish you had been there'" (The Times)
"'Terrific, an insightful memoir about family love'" (Evening Standard)
"'I loved it. Wheal spins a fine, affecting tale. It begins in a world where, on Fridays, factory girls wore curlers in their hair, and the now gentrified streets were once known for the brutality of their Saturday night fights. It ends with the horrors and destruction of war.' Gilda O'Neill, author of My East End and Our Street"

Who knew about the original Cremorne Gardens? Not me for sure! Vicat, Bifron, Stadium, Meek and Dartrey were replaced by World's End Estate in all it's anonmitiy (Still a great place to grow up though) Heart rending in places, tragic in others - And yet something on every page to bring a smile to the lips. As much a coming of age tale as an history lesson - And running all the way through the "Lets get on with it" attitude that was still prevalent in SW10 until I left in the mid 80's...
...and weren't we all better for it !
This book should be part of the course work in schools throughout Britain, nothing gives a better insight into the life our parents/grandparents lived and the real meaning of war. I was born ten years after Dee in a similar working class block of flats (only at the other end of Chelsea)and I now know how easy I had it.
