A Double Thread
     

A Double Thread

by John Gross
 

A touching memoir of a Jewish-English childhood in 1940s East End London.

Full of striking characters and odd encounters, this is an evocative picture of a lost London and a vanished culture, but it is also the story of an imaginative boy discovering his own path through books and films and school - away from Mile End into the new freedoms of the literary life.
