Summary, etc.:
"In the wake of Hilary Mantel's memoir, this collection of loosely autobiographical stories locates the transforming moments of a haunted childhood. Absorbing and evocative, these drawn-from-life stories begin in the 1950s in an insular northern village ٢scoured by bitter winds and rough gossip tongues.٣ For the young narrator, the only way to survive is to get up, get on, get out... With a deceptively light touch, Mantel illuminates the poignant experiences of childhood that leave each of us forever changed."-- Provided by publisher.
