– From his birth in 1916 until he ran away to London, William Woodruff lived in extreme poverty in the heart of Blackburn’s weaving community. “The Road to Nab End” is the tale of these childhood years. Of his grandmother who lectured on the importance of learning. His father who had it stuffing knocked out of him by the war. And a host of remarkable characters from a truly sadistic nun to the rector who had an unfortunate meeting with a lion at Skegness Fair. A story of human triumph against the odds.- Indbundet med omslag. – 407 sider. – Pænt eksemplar.
