Shirley May’s She Wrote Her Own Eulogy takes the reader on a journey, the landscape of Kent and Manchester brought to vibrancy via Jamaica. It is a twisting road, the displaced lives making new communities on strange soil, the stories kept and told and shared. It is wisdom, it is memory, and it is future and hope.
Lovely evocation of 60s and 70s Manchester
Shirley’s authentic voice is present throughout as she narrates the tale of her family establishing itself in the Moss Side and South Manchester of the 1960’s and 1970’s.
