Mae Stewart picks up where she left off in the hugely successful Dae Yeh Mind Thon Time? and continues her delightful memoirs of growing up in Dundee. In 'O' is Fir Ingin, Mae recalls life in the 1940s, 50s and beyond, recounting stories from school; days spent singing songs in the streets with her friends; Christmases with her family and New Year games such as 'Birl the Bottle' and the 'Lochee Tramcar'. Later Mae relives her coming-of-age as a teenager in the world of entertainment Dundee provided with its picture houses and dance halls. It was a lively time, and Mae was in the midst of it. Here, she vividly evokes 'whit it wiz like' back then when children had to make their own fun and games - before televisions and computers took over the world. 'O' is Fir Ingin is a nostalgic and lovingly observed trip down memory lane, full of joy and heartwarming tales.
