Our Kid (Paperback)

Billy Hopkins

-  

Billy Hopkins' OUR KID, the first of his novels based on his experiences growing up in Manchester, has delighted hundreds of thousands of readers. 'How wonderful to have a book like this...A glimpse of a lost reality' Manchester Evening News It was on a Sunday night in 1928 that Billy Hopkins made his first appearance. Billy's tenement home on the outskirts of Manchester would be considered a slum today, but he lived there happily with his large Catholic family, hatching money-making schemes with his many friends. When war came, and the Luftwaffe dominated the night sky, Billy was evacuated to Blackpool. There he lived on a starvation diet while his own rations went to feed his landlady's children - 'I might as well be in Strangeways!' But even the cruel blows that were to be dealt to the family on his return to Manchester would not destroy Billy's fighting spirit - or his sense of humour.
