Fred Pass has lived in Sheffield all his life. At 15, he left school and went to work in the scrap metal business, despite showing promise as a writer. His original dream was to become a journalist and he was offered a traineeship at The Sheffield Telegraph and Star, but was dissuaded from realising his ambition by those around him who didn't see journalism as a working class occupation. Fred stayed in the scrap metal industry for 40 years. For decades, Fred continued to write - mostly poetry - for the amusement of others and to raise money for local charities. But he changed into a higher gear to write Weerz me dad? a cornucopia of colourful stories from his childhood in the 1940s and early 50s, growing up in one of the poorest areas of Sheffield. It rapidly became the fastest-selling book by a local author that Sheffield had ever seen - and it soon proved to have more than just local appeal. Clearly, the characters, the atmosphere of the times, and the memories conjured up by this book ring true for readers living all over the country, not just in South Yorkshire. But there's more to this book than pure nostalgia. Weerz me dad? will give you much to think about and may stir your emotions. It could also make you laugh, probably out loud and for a long time.
