Bad Blood

by SAGE, LORNA

Bad Blood

Bad Blood

One of the most critically acclaimed memoirs ever written.
One of the ten books - novels, memoirs and one very unusual
biography - that make up our Matchbook Classics series, a
stunningly redesigned collection of some of the best loved titles
on our backlist. Lorna Sage's outstanding memoir of childhood and
adolescence brings to life her eccentric family and bizarre
upbringing in rural Wales.
The period is evoked through a wickedly funny and deeply
intelligent account, from the 1940s, dominated for Lorna by
her dissolute but charismatic vicar grandfather, through the
1950s, where the invention of fish fingers revolutionised the
lives of housewives like Lorna's mother, to the brink of the
1960s, where Lorna's pregnancy at 16 outraged those around her,
an event her grandmother blamed on the fiendish invention of sex.
Bad Blood vividly and wittily explores a vanished time and place.
