About this book
A country childhood memoir from the popular poet and comedian. A key part of Ayres's sell-out solo stage shows are her wry and evocative anecdotes about her own life, and this will satisfy fans eager to hear more of these stories. Growing up in a council house on the village green in 1940s and 1950s Berkshire, she was a civil servant aged 15, which she gave up to join the Women's Royal Air Force. Ties in with a tour around Britain, Australia and New Zealand.
Pam Ayres' early childhood in Stanford in the Vale was idyllic in many ways, and typical of that experienced by a great swathe of children born in rural areas in the immediate post-war years. This title gives her portrait.
