 The Co-Op's Got Bananas: A Memoir of Growing Up in the Post-War North - Hunter Davis

Large Print Book Our Price: £25.49  - Click book title for availability and further details

Despite the struggle to make ends meet during the tough years of warfare in the 1940s and rationing persisting until the early 1950s, life could still be sweet. Especially if you were a young boy, playing football with your pals, saving up to go to the movies at the weekend, and being captivated by the latest escapade of Dick Barton on the radio. Chocolate might be scarce, and bananas would be a pipe dream, but you could still have fun. One of the UK's premier columnists, Hunter Davies has captured post-war North of England from 1945 in a beautiful memoir that will resonate with readers across Britain.

How to be both is a novel all about art’s versatility.

There’s a renaissance artist of the 1460s. There’s the child of a child of the 1960s. Two tales of love and injustice twist into a singular yarn where time gets timeless, structural gets playful, knowing gets mysterious, fictional gets real - and all life’s givens get given a second chance.
