East End Memories by Jennie Hawthorne
Book DescriptionBorn in 1916 into an Irish Catholic family, Jennie Hawthorne spent her formative years in the heart of the East End, in a truly multicultural community. This vivid account of growing up is told with passion and humour - even though her drunken father struggles from crisis to crisis, and illness and crime are part of everyday life. The author's captivating anecdotes, poignant and entertaining, are suffused by the sights, sounds and smells of the East End in the 1920s and '30s. "East End Memories" is a wonderful evocation of a bygone age: Jennie Hawthorne's affectionate memoirs will entrance anyone who reads them.
