    Up the Junction PDF ´ Up the ePUB Þ junction download, Up the kindle, Up the Junction eBook45 starsA collection of short stories published in 1963 which later became a TV play and a film; neither were as hard hitting as the book It is set in the Battersea area of London and the Junction in the title is Clapham railway junction which is close by The title has come to mean other things since then; remember the Sueeze song It is an examination of the lives of working class women at a time when homosexuality and abortion were still illegal The narrative is dialogue led very raw and shocking and driven by an elusive narrator who is almost absent The book is a series of vignettes which are dialogue led and linked by a number of female characters There is no judgement by the narrator and the reader is left to make a judgement or not There

    Up the Junction PDF ´ Up the ePUB Þ junction download, Up the kindle, Up the Junction eBookSped through this in one evening after trying desperately to find something short and easy to attempt to read with my ongoing dizziness I like the film of this it's fun watching London in the 60s The books isn't uite as good but still a pleasant read written in a series of vignettes about friends who work in factories during the week and go 'Up the Junction' at the weekend to the clubs and pubs and bars The dialogue is a bit jumbled but overall an okay read

    Up the Junction PDF ´ Up the ePUB Þ junction download, Up the kindle, Up the Junction eBookOddly enough I read this book in 2015 and I have no memory of it Up The Junction is a remarkable collection of short stories that take place in London specifically the district Battersea Nell Dunn is a magnificent writer I never heard of her until I looked her up and I'm amazed that she was from the upper class Her understanding of the local language in Battersea is pure poetry to my ears The stories are mostly in dialogue and all deal wit

    Up the Junction PDF ´ Up the ePUB Þ junction download, Up the kindle, Up the Junction eBookReading Nell Dunn's collection of short stories Up The Junction is like being buried in a coffin full of 12''' Smiths record covers One can taste the lukewarm cream tea or a dark bitter right off the page For me what these stories published in 1963 do is tell the tale because of the rich London language and accents I know nothing of Dunn's life or where she came from but I read that she came from a higher class and chose to live in Batters

    Up the Junction PDF ´ Up the ePUB Þ junction download, Up the kindle, Up the Junction eBookThis is a little book of short stories that blend together to give a view of the Wandsworth area of London in the 1960's The Junction is Clapham Junction and one of the places that the girls live in is Poplar that was made famous in the books and tv series Call The Midwife The writing is mostly in the form of dialog which at times I found a little disjointed The lives of the group of girls who work at the sweet factory consist of going to work and going out at night to 'have a good time' The low expectations of Rube Sylvie and the other girls was sad all they wanted was a man The part where Rube has to visit the local back street abortionist Winny is horrific and the eventual result of the procedure is tragic and shocking The picture painted of the house in which Ada lives made my stomach turn over the smell and the mess but
