9780704311138: Holding on

This is the story of a street in London's dockland and of a family who lived in it. The street was built in the 1880s and the Wheelwright family (orignally dockers) lived there until its tragic demolition in the 1960s when it was replaced by tower blocks. As a social document, the book rings with truth, but it is much more than that: its compelling narrative brings the reader right into the life of the Wheelwright family and their neighbours.

From Publishers Weekly:

This saga of three generations of the Wheelwright family of East End London begins at the turn of the century when Dora and Jack Wheelwright move to Steadman Street. They have been married six months and she is nearly nine months pregnant. Soon come children, two world wars, dockyard strikes, unions of love and necessity. The family becomes entangled with Italian immigrants, middle-class people, landed gentry and a Jew. At the end of the novel, Dora and Jack's aging son contemplates the fate of his home and the strangeness of the 1960s. Sadly, Jones makes the Wheelwrights' story as ordinary as real life but much less memorable.
