Reader Comments

An excellent evocation of time and place.
An excellent read: inviting recollection and reflection.
I have always admired his writing - this is another superb offering.
Let there be many more.
More like this are a must!
Evocative of a time so familiar to those from that era, very readable.
Wonderfully atmospheric - the essays give a fantastic feeling for the 50s and what it was like growing up in those days. The stories have a wonderful humanity about them.
