Description

Sheila Rowbotham's wryly humerous and honest memoir about growing up in the 'sixties was universally praised by critics when published in hardcover. It contains all the sex, drugs and rock-and-roll that you'd expect from the period. But Sheila writes with charm and candour to reveal a more complex cultural moment that proved to be such a break from the first fifty years of the century.show more
