We Never Had It So Good

This is a book by David Williams that I'm reading at lunchtimes. It was a leaving present to Bill, but when I learned it was about growing up in Ashington (a coal mining village in the North East of England) in the 1950's I was curious, having grown up in the '50's myself. I identified a lot with Bill Bryson's Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid in which he describes his childhood in Iowa. This Ashington book seems to have a lot of parallels, probably it's just in the innocence of that time.
