Chalk for CheeseeBook - 2015
Growing up in the '50s and '60s, Jill and Jay explore the era through contrasting perspectives. They are intrinsically different...or are they? Jill's background is working-class Tyneside. Her family life is happy, if dysfunctional. Despite woeful schooling, Jill is a wonderful learner and her intellectual mentors, the 'lit twins', are destined to be a lasting influence. Blessed with modesty and a magnetic personality, she mesmerises the many young men and women who meet her. Jay enjoys strong parental support and an idyllic childhood. He is touched by Autolycus and becomes a 'snapper-up of unconsidered trifles' in middle-class Lancashire and Norfolk. However, he can be a bit of a jerk, and is full of contradictions. This, and the events that unfold, sequester him from his peers, which Jay relishes! 'Chalk for Cheese' is about two individuals trying to find themselves (and unwittingly one another) in a changing world.
