About this title

Synopsis:

Letter to my Daughter is an enchanting book about growing up and remembering the vanished scenes of childhood. In a letter to his then 17-year-old daughter Jessica, Graham Little draws an intimate portrait of himself as a small boy in Northern Ireland in the 1940s. The pleasures and traumas of domestic life, seen through the eyes of a child, are portrayed with unforgettable vividness.

Graham Little’s story is also about migrating. In 1948, when he was nine, his family moved to England. Then he encountered the glamour of his grandfather’s club in the West End, pea-soup fogs, and postwar prep schools that taught spelling as a political virtue. But his father was soon looking for another fresh start, and the 15-year-old boy found himself playing deck-tennis and falling in love on a P&O liner steaming to Australia, where he would learn the manners of a new country.

Written in an under-stated and yet deeply evocative prose, Letter to my Daughter reclaims a lost world and makes it our world, too.

Penny and David and Kaos, Eris and Killishandra who replaced Pixel 18 y.o., Telzey 19 y.o and Meera 9 y.o. have all gone to the mousery in the sky ) and Penny has a great big letter S on her forehead ( stands for sucker ) and we now have Leeloo as a fourth cat. (Eris now stays at home guarding our brass bed, and doing the occasional rounds of the kitchen.) 2 shop locations (his and hers). It keeps him out of her hair which is proudly gray, (and she complains to her hairdresser that it's not going white quickly enough!) Stock in excess of 220,000 books (slowly putting them onto computer ) ( about 34,000 so far) About 40% of our stock is hard-cover, and of these OVER 80% are first editions.
