About this title

Synopsis:

Best-selling author Donald James grew up in World’s End, Chelsea during the Blitz years. Just on the edge of a fashionable middle class world, his childhood experience was in stark contrast to the privileged, bourgeois lifestyle glimpsed a few hundred yards away. He grew up in stark poverty and depredation, a hard existence yet shot through by the humour and courage of his family and neighbours. World’s End was a melting pot of the working class labourers who flooded to London in the previous century to make their fortunes, and Donald’s family was no exception. Though it was hard, Donald’s was a happy childhood until the war came. Then came the night that Donald’s world, did literally end and with it his childhood.
From the Paperback edition.
