Holding the Hands of Angels: Poems from a Seaside Childhood (Paperback)Brian Moses (author)
Paperback Published: 15/09/2011
- Not available
In "Holding the Hands of Angels", Brian Moses recollects his childhood in the 1950s and 60s. A childhood straight out of "The Dangerous Book for Boys"', and very different to what children experience today. No computers, mobile phones, playstations, iPods, no McDonalds. Only a black and white television - how did children of that generation stave off the crushing boredom? The truth is, they were led by their imaginations. They rode off on their bikes, explored the seashore, climbed cliffs, played games in the bombsites left over from World War II. Brian Moses looks back to the days when adventuring was character building and not laced with all kinds of risk assessment dangers. "Holding the Hands of Angels" offers a window into another world, one that has sadly largely disappeared.
