Crossing the Lines by Melvyn Bragg


Quick Overview

The much-praised third part of 'a monumental series' (Sunday Times)


'Marvellous...richly detailed and extraordinarily poignant' David Robson, Sunday Telegraph Set in Britain during the 1950s, this moving and evocative novel follows the intertwined fates of people crossing boundaries in their lives -- from growing older to growing up, from first love to leaving home. Vividly conveying the spirit of the mid-century and the profound social changes taking place at the time, this is an enthralling successor to the award-winning The Soldier's Return and A Son of War. 'Bragg brilliantly conveys Joe's youthful idealism and the ultimate dislocation from family and community that will be experienced by the working-class lad (or lass) who manages to win a university education ...I, frankly, can't wait to read what happens next.' Val Hennessy, Daily Mail 'If you want to know what Labour England after 1945 was really like, I cannot recommend [it] too highly...His three novels on the subject put even the historians in the shade.' Michael Foot, Guardian 'Sharp yet tender, it is an astonishingly confident, slowly unreeled account' Rosemary Goring, Glasgow Herald
