Synopsis

A BIRMINGHAM BACKSTREET BOYHOOD is a fascinating, funny and poignant recollection of the experience of growing up in the slums of Nechells and Aston.

All the harshness of daily life is remembered here by local author Graham Twist. Despite hard living condition and a distinct lack of money, a strong community spirit prevailed and families and neighbourhoods were close-knit. The womenfolk on particular took great pride in their homes, however humble, and scrubbed their front steps and swept the areas in front of their houses religiously.

In these tough times you hoped nobody noticed you going to the 'pop shop' to pawn precious valuables to get enough money to pay the rent or buy food for the family....

Graham Twist was born in a back-to-back in Nechells and was brought up in and around that area. He has confirmation from local radio personality Dr Carl Chinn to write the foreword. He will also interview Graham on his radio show once the book is out and do all he can to publicise it for us.
