9780141000466: Our Street

Gilda O'Neill's Our Street focuses on the lives of Londoners in the East End during the Second World War. Showing the concerns, hopes and fears of these so-called 'ordinary people' Our Street illustrates these times by looking at the every day rituals which marked the patterns of daily life during WWII. It is an important book and also an affectionate record of an often fondly remembered, more communal, way of life that has all but disappeared. 'Every page is a delight. Every chapter made vivid by a writer who has poured heart and soul into her book' Daily Mail 'A rich tapestry... a finely detailed examination of our not so distant past. Her book is as much a piece of history as the accounts it contains' Time Out Gilda O'Neill was born and brought up in the East End. She left school at fifteen but returned to education as a mature student. She wrote full-time and continued to live in the East End with her husband and family. Sadly she died on 24 September 2010 after a short illness.

About the Author:

Gilda O'Neill grew up in the East End of London. Having left schoold aged fifteen, she later returned to education as a mature student and went on to take three university degrees. Since 1990 she has been writing full-tiem and has published ten novels and to non-fiction works. Gilda O'neill is married with two grown-up children and lives in the East End.

Review:

At first sight of Our Street, the old publishing maxim 'if they like it once they'll love it twice' comes to mind as it might initially seem little different from My East End, Gilda O'Neill's bestselling social history of the area in which she grew up which achieved a 24,500 hardback and 110,000 paperback sale. However, this affectionate, nostalgic record of East End life during World War II is a very different book which focuses on veteran Cockneys who tell their sometimes funny, sometimes hopeful and often shocking stories of what it was really like living through the Blitz. Through these oral testimonies O'Neill paints a picture of a tightly knit community of extended families, life-long friends and close neighbours that sadly no longer exists in our big cities.
