In this delightful host of tales, he invokes the spirit of the time. He tells of skiving off Mass, of the extraordinary singer/coal miner Albert Crabtree, and of his dad: a reformed hypochondriac, self-taught herbalist, and boxing trainer. These nostalgic stories recreate the unity and values of a community and an age that is, sadly, long gone.
