Born in 1916 into an Irish Catholic family, Jennie Hawthorne spent her formative years in the heart of the East End, in a truly multicultural community.
This vivid account of growing up is told with passion and humour - even though her drunken father struggles from crisis to crisis, and illness and crime are part of everyday life.
