Rate this:
Living Backwards: A Transatlantic Memoir incorporates November 1948 into a longer work that takes the ten-year-old author from a small gray Yorkshire village to the bright postwar boom of Los Angeles and back again at fourteen to the sober mill region of his ancestors.Through it all Living Backwards captures in moving detail a schoolboy's feeling of being neither of one place nor the other. As his father loses his battle with Alzheimer's disease, the middle-aged narrator becomes his father's memory, recalling for him his Yorkshire past, tying together the book's themes of memory and loss, identity and place.
