36 Cornelian Avenue by Christopher Wiseman
Book DescriptionReturning to a childhood marred by the Second World War, this revealing ensemble revisits the streets, shore, and woods that belonged to the resort town of Scarborough. In clear, quick-moving colloquial poetry, each word explores how the war affected the townspeople--turning some into curmudgeons, others into compassionate heroes--and how the experience toughened the frightened women and children into survivors, waiting for their men to come home. Part novel, part memoir, part passionate recollection, this narrative presents characters as they were, caught in the heartbreaking hardship of wartime England.
