glorious... A real treat, particularly for fans of the TV show, and one to keep>
This is an illustrated version...studded with drawings and wonderful black-and-white photographs of the East End - where Jennifer practised - in the 1950s... very moving... Worth's publishers have included photographs from her own family albums...so that you get an even clearer sense of this lost world - those who lived it, and those who tried to make it more bearable>
brings the East End of the Fifties to life>
From the moment I opened this beautifully-illustrated hardback, I was enchanted - from the poignant sepia photographs, to the author's engaging, conversational prose... I would highly recommend this book for anyone looking for a moving and heart-warming memoir>
