SUGAR BUTTIES AND MERSEY MEMOIRS

ByKATHLEEN DODD

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Sugar Butties and Mersey Memoirs by Kath Dodd is a striking collection of poems and pros which capture the memories of a childhood spent in Liverpool during the heady days of the “Mersey Beat”, mods, and the emergence of The Beatles in 50’s and 60’s. These are not, however, simply poems about youthful rebellion and a world on the brink of change but also are gentle reflections on family, childhood games, places long gone. The book succeeds in evoking this world without being sentimental or nostalgic and has a personal tone while simultaneously describing the universal pleasures of childhood. Part three of the book relates the fascinating story of Margaret Beavan, one of Liverpool's great historical characters. Together with extractsof letters written by those who remember her, we are given an affectionate glimpse into the life of a very special lady. Ms. Dodd displays a unique talent which is sure to be appreciated by any reader.
