BOOKWORM is a memoir of childhood reading, which gives fascinating glimpses into the world of children’s books and libraries in 1950s’ Belfast. It is an engaging and idiosyncratic approach to social and literary history and the author’s lifelong involvement with books and book collecting. Patricia Craig is, as well as being a leading critic and anthologist, the co-author of the unrivalled tour de force and landmark text You’re a Brick, Angela! A New Look at Girls’ Fiction 1839-1975, which is an essential source book for anyone interested in girls’ reading and popular culture. Patricia Craig is well known as an author and book critic both in Ireland and the UK, and we are expecting considerable media attention. This book will captivate the attention of readers interested in children’s books, book collecting and Belfast history and topography.
