When Me Was a Boy by Charles Hyatt

Book Description

What was it like to be a small boy growing up in Kingston, Jamaica in the 1930s? "When Me Was a Boy" tells exactly what it was like. Charles Hyatt remembers his boyhood in vivid detail, and in his own inimitable voice talked about it in his radio programme "When Me Was a Boy". In this selection from those pieces, Hyatt brings his school days to life: the tramcar and horse-and-buggy days when cars were few and far between and taking a walk was a social occasion. These are hilarious moments - look out for the "Black Heart Man" - and historic ones, and Hyatt's sharp observation and remarkable memory put us right on the spot sharing his feelings and experiences.
