Long Time No See

by Hannah Lowe
£9.99   paperback  Garnet Publishing Ltd (Periscope) (2015)

Long Time No See by Hannah Lowe Hannah Lowe's father "Chick", a half-Chinese, half-black Jamaican immigrant, worked long hours at night to support his family - except Chick was no ordinary working man. A legendary gambler, he would vanish into the shadows of East London to win at cards or dice, returning in daylight to greet the daughter whose love and respect he courted.
 
In this poignant memoir, Lowe calls forth the unstable world of card sharps, confidence men and small-time criminals that eventually took its toll on Chick. She also evokes her father's Jamaica, where he learned his formidable skills, and her own coming of age in a changing Britain.
 
Long Time No See speaks eloquently of love and its absence, regret and compassion, and the struggle to know oneself.
