"'Have you got a penny mister?' By now there was an awful turmoil inside him. He could not be seen crying, but he badly wanted to cry. SNOW WHITE would start....soon." Joe needed another penny to buy his movie ticket. So don't be fooled as I was by the martial title of this novel. This is a coming- of-age novel, too precious for some. Mark McGann presents the voices of children, full of hope, innocence, and longing. He also renders the women and men in the pubs. There are betrayals and disappointments in working-class England after the war. Some dreams are realized, others not. More tears are spilled than blood. B.H.C.
