Summary

George Layton's three books about growing up in 1950's England, together in one volume.

In "The Fib," "The Swap" and "The Trick" George Layton's collections of short stories evoke a nostalgic, atmospheric view of growing up in the 1950s.

Now published together for the first time as a bind-up.

"The Fib" features an array of characters, some extremely awkward situations, and a host of memorable falsehoods.

"The Swap" is a prequel to "The Fib" with the character entering grammar school

"The Trick" further trials for the character and his peers in the northern town

George Layton's stories evoke a nostalgic, atmospheric view of growing up in the 1950s. From the funny and faintly ridiculous to the terribly tragic, every tale brings a young boy's small world, and its big complications, to life.
Growing up is both funny and painful in this bittersweet collection of short stories, set in the fifties but just as relevant today.

NOTE : "The Fib" first published in 1989. "The Swap" first published in 1997. "The Trick" first published in 2006.

NOTE : Book banded by Peters.
