Allerton Bywater: Memories of a Yorkshire Boyhood

Front Cover
XOXOX Press, 2007 - Biography & Autobiography - 220 pages
Literary Nonfiction. Biography and memoir. ALLERTON BYWATER by Bruce Haywood is a charming and thoughtful gaze back across the Atlantic at a very specific place in time--the author's home ground, an English coal mining town of the 1930s and 40s. The peculiar human ways of that place and its people come across clearly and endearingly in this lively memoir. The process of becoming American and seeing his old home ground anew, through American eyes, is an insightful thread throughout.
