Reader's note

Add a classic vintage Penguin to your bookshelf with this yellow 1948 first edition of Scowle and Other Papers with some drawings by Bernard Hollowood. Mr Bernard Hollowood's career has been varied, you could say chequered. The gathered wisdom of a long (too long) life is contained (easily) in these pages. He looks back with pride and affection (though don't ask why) on his childhood in the Midland mining village of Scowle. That early home set the tone for his whole approach to life. When he grows up and becomes a master at St Morbids', the influence of those formative years is still visible. Indeed it shows through (and shows up) the whole course of his days. Surely, Snacker and Diplocket's Small Things Co. (where he was welfare officer during some of the darkest days of the war) will never forget this man. His stamp is on the place; assuredly they talk of him still. This section on Industrial Relations is as pathetic as any in the book. But no man can last for ever, and 'Growing Old Gracefully' shows willing acceptance for old age in the writer, and will stir gratitude for it in the reader's heart.
