This memoir of my childhood was published by degree zero on 8th June 2018 and can be ordered now at Waterstones online. No doubt discarded review copies will appear on Amazon in due course. There is only a hardback edition.
As personal memoir it is focussed on the years from my birth in 1947 until arrival at university in 1965, but it is also a story of my mother's life and she lived from 1907 until 1978.
The jacket uses a photograph taken in 2011 by an urban explorer in the abandoned Dartford mental hospital, Stone House, originally the City of London Lunatic Asylum.
