In this new edition of Joyce Storeys autobiography, the previous three editions are amalgamated and the complete story of her life is told. Born near Bristol in 1917, Joyce began her autobiography at age 66. The House in South Road follows her pre-war life in Bristol, an era of chocolate factories and glamorous silent movies. With a brilliant eye for the comic in the tragic, Joyce unfolds her experiences at school, her first job, her first love, and a mismatched marriage. During the war Joyce is a mother of two and her RAF husband is rarely on leave, and after the war Joyce begins to enjoy the luxury of a prefab house, first holidays, and the growing independence of her four children, but suffers a breakdown in her marriage and her husbands final illness. With humor and intelligence, Joyce Storey charts a good deal of the 20th Century.
