[EAN: 9781904408048], Neubuch, [PU: Bank House Books], Achild from the 1950s, George Hills is beaten often, at home and school. With only his disillusioned mother to protect him, the boy learns to live with humiliation, coming to reject everything masculine or violent. George's gradual release begins with the death of his father and the freedom to explore his feminine feelings. Escape into the gender-bending, protesting, drug-taking world of 1970s student life exposes him to conflict when he falls for the girl that he'd really like to be. Sister Lizzie had been daddy's favourite. Without his affection, she is lost, pursuing her own escape in a world of boys, trapped by teenage pregnancy which leads her to years of abuse. The story is told by the voices of the three Hills family members, who have always been divided. The mother's secrets must be given up before they can all find real freedom. As a student, George had read 'Freedom is the recognition of necessity' daubed upon a University of East Anglia walkway. Before he can be free he must face up to his sense of failure. While mourning his lost girlfriend, he realises what he has known for years. The story moves against the background of years from the 1930s until the watershed of 1979, when these old working class ways and hardships were supposedly washed away by the dawn of Thatcherism and a new beginning. Son of a former soldier and lorry driver, who died when his son was eleven, R.J. COOK graduated from the University of East Anglia and Goldsmiths College, London, experiencing the 'gender bending, protesting, drug taking years' first-hand. His varied working life has included such diverse employers as the Nitrate Corporation of Chile and the British Civil Service. Work as a stand-upcomedian and female-impersonator has further enhanced his perspective in creating this fascinating novel. 172 pages.
