9780140259506: My East End A History Of Cockney London

Gilda O'Neill's The East End traces the East End of London - cockneys, criminals, street markets, pub singalongs, dog racing, jellied eels. London's East End it is a place at once appealing and unruly, comforting and incomprehensible. Gilda O'Neill, an East Ender herself shows there is more to this fascinating area than a collection of cliched images. Using oral history and more traditional sources she builds up a powerful image of this community - bringing to us, with wit and honesty, the real story of London's East End. 'Every page is a delight. Every chapter made vivid by a writer who has poured heart and soul into her book' Daily Mail 'A rich tapestry... a finely detailed examination of our not so distant past. Her book is as much a piece of history as the accounts it contains' Time Out Gilda O'Neill was born and brought up in the East End. She left school at fifteen but returned to education as a mature student. She wrote full-time and continued to live in the East End with her husband and family. Sadly she died on 24 September 2010 after a short illness.

About the Author:

Gilda O'Neill grew up in the East End of London. Having left school aged fifteen, she later returned to education as a mature student and went on to take three university degrees. Since 1990 she has been writing full-time and has published numerous works of both fiction and non-fiction, including two non-fiction bestsellers, My East End and Our Street. Gilda O'Neill is married with two grown-up children and lives in the East End.

From AudioFile:

O'Neill's oral history of the East End in London gathers many stories of hardship, games, and community from people who grew up there. Most of the recollections come from folks who were children during and after WWII; they view life in the slums with optimism and a generous degree of fun. Oral history is particularly well suited to audio, especially when the reader is as skilled as Carole Boyd. Boyd uses her rich voice for O'Neill's text and a variety of Cockney accents for the interviews that make up the bulk of the book. Even when there are several interviews in a row, the listener can always discern when one person's memories end and another's begin.
