About this title


Eric Wright is well known for his award-winning crime fiction. In this memoir he writes engagingly and with great charm about growing up poor in an English working-class family during the Depression. He paints a vivid picture of his childhood and adolescence in pre-war England plagued by class structure and restriction. This is a superbly written memoir and an invaluable portrait of a social class as well as the immigrant experience to this country.

About the Author:

Eric Wright was born in London in 1929 and emigrated to Canada in 1951. He has written fifteen detective novels, notably the Charlie Salter series. His first novel won the John Creasy Award for the best first crime novel in England, and he has since won four Arthur Ellis awards for crime writing, as well as a City of Toronto Award. He is married with two daughters and makes his home in Toronto.
