RRP  $18.00 $17.75
In my childhood the sun always shone, my mum was always tender and transported me in a seat on the back of a bicycle. She knitted me clothes and a bathing suit, took me to the beach, and be poor in a nice place." gave me the childhood she had never had. Dad was solid and reliable. He took me fishing and, later, bought me a rabbiting dog. He had an expression that he repeated periodically in reflective moments, "If you are going to be poor, Orange Juice & Cod Liver Oil This is the story in three parts of an ordinary but resourceful family, told against a backdrop of the social and political events of the 20th century. Orange Juice and Cod Liver Oil recalls the wars and turmoil of the first half of the century and chronicles the lives of a returning Tommy and his family surviving on temporary jobs and living in makeshift accommodation, including a mobile morgue. You will share Peter Morley's poor, but idyllic childhood in the New Forest, and see how early lessons on the social order were drawn from teenage years passed as poacher, apprentice, motorcyclist and rower.
Nourished by the Welfare State, the author eventually obtained enough education to have a successful career in an international company, with travel that provided opportunities to observe social conditions and attitudes of people around the globe. This delightful book will make you laugh and cry as it takes you through a century that saw more change and social evolution than any previous time. Orange Juice and Cod Liver Oil will appeal not only to those who remember the "Baby Boomer" years, but to business travellers and the current "digital" generation who have no experience of life without "technology" and entertainment on a plate.
