Walking on My Hands: Out of India - The Teenage Years

by Jamila Gavin
£5.99   paperback  Hodder and Stoughton (2007)

Walking on My Hands: Out of India - The Teenage Years by Jamila Gavin After spending her early childhood moving to and fro between two countries - India and England - Jamila Gavin came to London at the age of 13, and settled there with her mother and sister, leaving her father and brother in India.
In this new environment, Jamila often felt that things were upside down or back to front - as if she was walking on her hands.
From her arrival in the Coronation year to her departure to study in Paris, Jamila Gavin gives a vivid and personal view of teenage life in 1950s England.
