This is a story of life in the East End of London. It is both the author's own tale and the social history of a community possessing a greater heritage than the characterful criminals, cheeky barrow-boys and jellied eels so often offered up as representative of the area.

About the Author:

Gilda O'Neill grew up in the East End of London. Having left school aged fifteen, she later returned to education as a mature student and went on to take three university degrees. Since 1990 she has been writing full-time and has published numerous works of both fiction and non-fiction, including two non-fiction bestsellers, My East End and Our Street. Gilda O'Neill is married with two grown-up children and lives in the East End.

From AudioFile:

O'Neill's oral history of the East End in London gathers many stories of hardship, games, and community from people who grew up there. Most of the recollections come from folks who were children during and after WWII; they view life in the slums with optimism and a generous degree of fun. Oral history is particularly well suited to audio, especially when the reader is as skilled as Carole Boyd. Boyd uses her rich voice for O'Neill's text and a variety of Cockney accents for the interviews that make up the bulk of the book. Even when there are several interviews in a row, the listener can always discern when one person's memories end and another's begin.
