Springfield RoadSpringfield Road is a journey into childhood in the seventies A journey peppered with daydreams through a poetic child's eye view from the cracks in the pavement to the faces in the clouds This book is a salute to every curly top scabby knee'd mixed up half crazy kid out there It's a tale of the kids who had free s. A beautifully written memoir of growing up in 70s England This book surprised me at just how good it wasI'd never heard of Salena Godden before and had no idea of her background This is the tale of a difficult upbringing but told without a shred of self pity or woe is me Godden has carried these often painful and unresolved childhood memories around with her for a long long time Whoever suggested she write them down was a wise person It would be easy to say she reopened old wounds but Godden writes about wounds that have never really started to heal She's very open about how difficult it was for her to revisit mentally and physically her past but it surely must be cathartic for herMy only criticism is that the book sometimes feels as if it could do with some tighter editing For example the same small passages get repeated three or four timesThe book finishes as Godden enters her teens I can only imagine what her teenage years were actually like There's no way she would have sailed through them serenely I do hope she writes another volume

I saw Salena Godden perform spoken word in Glasgow and was blown away she was incredible so warm and naturally funny My sister and I have been uoting her ever since and I bought this book straight away Her memoir is as warm as her stage performance and I loved delving into her memories I'm amazed she can recall so much from her early childhood maybe we all could if we tried I was interested in her youthful friendships how she had such a clear idea of the type of girl each of her friends was yet she seemed to shape herself to whatever their pursuits were I felt a ring of truth in this and wonder whether the other girls were just as insecure in themselves as she was and we all were at that age
