Paras over the Barras (Signed copy)

£24.99

Product description

There's a war on and for Glasgow, like the rest of Britain, that means air raids, black-outs, food rationing, barrage balloons and the pain of parting as husbands and fathers go off to fight. For the McSorleys and their neighbours in the East End tenements it is a case of making the best of what life has to offer. This is their laugh-a-line story capturing all the wit and spirit of city life during the dark days of the forties when the grit and humour of Glaswegians overcame all adversities. Condition: Pages in good condition with no rips or foxing. There is a crease near the spine on the front cover and and some slight wear to the edges, otherwise in fine condition. Signed by the Author on the title page.
