Out Of Print... Through this collection of memories of childhood in the south Wales valleys and towns, the reader will glean fascinating details of the everyday domestic lives of people who grew up before the Second World War. Jeffrey Grenfell-Hill, 'an unusually good and interested listener', according to Professor Glanmor Williams, has recorded conversations with people from a variety of backgrounds and social classes, individuals all of them, but with one gift in common: the ability to breathe life into the scenes they describe. Home life and house rules; going to school; play and other pastimes; rituals at coming of age; courtship; marriage and the rearing of the next generation: it is all here, recollected and retold with great vitality.
