Night Song of the Last Tram
Out of stock
A wonderfully colourful and deeply poignant memoir of growing up in a ‘single end’ – one room in a Glasgow tenement – during and immediately after the Second World War. Robert Douglas paints a hugely moving picture of a chilhood spent below the poverty line in post-war Glasgow which, for all its deprivation, was full of remarkable characters and blessed with an unshakable spirit. Night Song of the Last Tram is a superb evocation of childhood and of a Glasgow of trams and tenements that has long since disappeared.
