Allerton Bywater


Gem of a memoir, Yorkshire coal town 1930s boyhood, well told

by Bruce Haywood

A charming and thoughtful gaze back across the Atlantic at a very specific place in time — Bruce Haywood’s home ground, a Yorkshire coal mining town of the 1930’s and 40’s. The peculiar human ways of that place and its people come across clearly and endearingly in this lively memoir. The process of becoming American and seeing his old home ground anew, through American eyes, is an insightful thread woven throughout. “This work is an entertaining tale of a Renaissance figure growing up to play the piano and saxophone, to marry an American woman and to father two daughters. Simply and eloquently written with touches of unexpected humor, it is a gem of a memoir.” (Amazon reviewer)
