In Way Over Yonder David Lawler recalls his 1940s childhood years living in Bootle's dockland. It was a neighbourhood scarred by war and in a period of transition. The playworld inhabited by young Davey and his friends reads like a lost 'Golden Age' of innocence now: frog-filled meadows, spirited bike rides, dockland adventures and numerous street games provide the backcloth for a memoir full of childhood scenes and incident. His memories are ably written with the power to take the reader on a journey through a unique and bitter-sweet time, the like of which we will never see again. Wherever read, this memoir should have universal appeal.
