There she learned to love extravagant hymns and to receive regular beatings. Suddenly, when Marian was ten, her mother appeared. All four children were swept up by their mother to live in a damp and filthy flat off Baker Street. There began a life of moonlight flits, camping and squats. Marian’s mother forgot to feed her children, and paid no attention to school or the bombing.

by Marian Hughes (Author). Marian had a very tough childhood growing up in London in the 1940's. Her father committed suicide when she was born and her mother's mental health deteriorated with her violent outbursts becoming progressively worse. This led to Marian spending her childhood in and out of harsh institutions or living in squalor and starvation with her mum and having to beg or rob to survive.

This wartime autobiography describes how Marian Hughes, her sisters and brother were put in an orphanage after their father's suicide, leading a strict and regimented life until their mother returned and took them to live in a squalid flat off Baker Street. After that life became a story of moonlight flits from one temporary home to another while the Blitz raged, of semi-starvation and no schooling. Marian's sisters and brothers disappeared and she was left to support her deranged and violent mother until she was finally certified. Yet this account of a turbulent childhood is full of vigour and a passionate love of life.
