Unusual for an autobiography, Flickerbook is a re-living rather than a remembering. The distinguished children's author and writer on children and education, Leila Berg, re-experiences her early Jewish childhood and adolescence during the twenties and thirties up until the day when the first air-raid siren sounded.
Nourished in her battle to make sense of the world by the riches of Manchester - the theatre, the bookstalls, the music, the cinema, a joyful love of the surrounding countryside - she grows into a fiercely independent young woman, and joins the anti-fascists, then the Young Communists. Refusing to go to university, appalled by her brief experience of teacher training college, she falls in love; but both her lovers are killed, fighting in Spain in the International Brigade.
Leila Berg introduces us to a sad, funny and passionate child who we see grow through the years. Flickerbook is an extraordinarily honest and moving work of autobiography which will change the way we think about children and childhood forever.
