"He was indeed the nearest anybody ever got to Charlie Chaplin in print...the sentences skid and dance and hop on one leg or take a custard pie right on the chin or duck and weave and leave you gasping behind. But he is more for the wry smile than the belly laugh". This was how Sid Chaplin described Jack Common, author of one of the finest working-class novels written this century. Common was born in 1903 in Newcastle, England, and grew up in the terraced streets backing onto the railway yards where his father worked.
