gloria's secret history,
This review is from: War Crimes for the Home (Paperback)
This is a dark book graphically describing the situation of GI brides, but with many twists and turns. There is a lot of dark humour and corny jokes so loved by the chief character, a revolting, deluded old women called Gloria who looks back at her wartime affair with a handsome, sweet talking American pilot called Ron from Chicago. The author's achievement is to make the reader absorbed in this sordid relationship and to make the story in the context of the exigencies of war very convincing. She cleverly slowly reveals Gloria's secret past and the story by means of hypnosis in some hilarious passages.The book has some genuinely funny episodes but as another reviewer has remarked is not for the prudish.
So if you want to know what your gran or great gran did during the war, this is the book to read. Maybe you should discover their stories before it is too late. They will not be all as outrageous as Gloria's. Or will they?
