9781409283331: There Was a Time

Following the very successful First Edition published in 2002, this Second edition of `There Was a Time' has extra stories and illustrations. It tells a gripping and moving account of a young boy's tough journey into manhood. Victor Shackleton paints an eloquent and vivid picture of not only his austere and intimidating schooldays during the days of the Second World War, but waxes lyrically of his discovery of the joys of good music. The author's gripping narrative of his days working as a steeplejack at the tops of Lancashire's great mill chimney stacks is an utterly fascinating account, whilst his two years stint in a grocery warehouse after leaving school is described in brilliant fashion, that mixes humour with nerve-tingling drama. He also describes other steeplejacks, one of them a magician, and relates the story of his grandfather who fell from a chimney and survived. A terrific read, with about 48 illustrations! (Profits will go to a deaf and blind charity, as with the First Edition.)
