Acock's Green - One of Eleven, by Julia Wareing

Published by The Kates Hill Press in 2006 as part of their 'Pocketful of Memories' series, 52 pages. A5 size booklet (N6155)

In this booklet the author provides a brief account of her childhood living and growing up in the Acocks Green area of South Birmingham, as well as her later family experiences of Alzheimer's.

From the rear side cover: The pocketful of memories series brings to life the sights, sounds, and smells of a bygone age through the words of writers for whom those times were a reality. In this booklet Julia Wareing describes her childhood and youth in the back to backs of Acock' s Green.... it tells a story of abuse and deprivation. Written in an almost youthful style the book describes her survival of a traumatic childhood.

There is no quota system to how much ill fortune individuals suffer in a lifetime. Given fair distribution, Julia's childhood should have been her lot, but in later years she has seen three of her sisters struck with Alzheimer's Disease. She uses the second part of the book to.... describe her experiences of the condition.

The booklet is in good overall condition. The cover has one or two very minor scuffs, and some light roll along the left hand edge, but the spine is intact, and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound. There is a small price sticker on the rear side cover.
