Morphine and Dolly Mixtures

Carol-Ann Courtney  All books by Carol-Ann Courtney

£8.95     Out of print

A true and compelling story of an eleven-year-old girl who, after her mother died of a brain tumour, was left in charge of three younger brothers and a baby sister.

This book is powerful, visual and arresting. It brings to life the north London slums of the mid-fifties and the plight of a vulnerable child at the mercy of an erratic and all-powerful father, watched helplessly from the sidelines by the local community, and inefficiently dealt with by the social services of the day.

This book has been made into a film of the same name.
