”I’ve just finished reading “The sun hasn’t fallen from the sky” by Alison Gangel. It’s a memoir of a child growing up, firstly in Glasgow and then being transferred to a children’s home. It’s set in the 1970′s, yet at times it feels as though it’s set a lot earlier than that. Despite the poverty, there is hope that the child will progress into a better life as she shows a musical talent. I enjoyed this – it’s very different from what I normally read. There is quite a lot of Glasgow dialect but it’s easy to read and understand.”

I enjoyed this book too.Alison Gangel visited Wakefield Library a few months ago and spoke openly and very movingly about her life. Find out more about her at ‘New Writing North’
