About This Item

London: Blond & Briggs, 1984. Author's first novel. In a vastly overcrowded city, where all social services have broken down, the human debris tumbles toward any space. The South London Commons are appropriated by packs of child-beggars, huddling in shanytowns, feeding off their surrounds without regard to personal property or law. " Their purpose, after all, is only life." Mardy is one such child, snatching a life for herself from market stalls and shop counters whilst Serim, the pack leader, must provide through more profitable crime..... This is a harrowing story which lifts the problems of overpopulation and the spiralling poverty trap, more commonly associated with the Third World, to a thriving western capital and, in so doing, gives these problems a new meaning. The author had taught disadvantaged children in Brixton and Wandsworth. A bright, clean book in an illustrated dust jacket. Jacket drawing by Barrie Thorpe. No names or inscriptions.. First Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Near Fine.
