Growing Up in the Gorbals : The Ralph Glasser Omnibus Paperback


"Growing Up in the Gorbals" describes Ralph Glasser's impoverished childhood and adolescence in Glasgow's slum tenements. "Gorbals Boy at Oxford" takes him, with a scholarship, to Oxford; into the army; and back to wartime Oxford.

With "Gorbals Voices", "Siren Songs", Ralph Glasser concluded his brilliant autobiographical sequence: venturing in to the perplexing, wayward world of postwar London.
