"This ambitious, groundbreaking novel takes on the taboo subject of racial hatred as it looks for the roots of violence within the family and within British society. The Whites are an ordinary British family. Alfred White, a London park keeper, still rules his home with fierce conviction and inarticulate tenderness. May, his clever, passive wife loves Alfred but conspires against him. Their three children are no longer close; the elder son has left for America and the youngest son is a virulent racist. The daughter is involved in an interracial relationship with a black social worker. When the father's sudden illlness forces the children to come together, their deep fears and prejudices come to the surface, raising issues about kinship, trust, and hatred"--Publisher's description.

My animal life by Maggie Gee ( Book )
4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 113 libraries worldwide
Love, death and good behaviour looked very different to a girl growing up in a small family in 1950s England. Maggie Gee tells the true story of becoming an adult during the sexual revolution of the 1960s and living through dramatic changes in attitudes towards race, class and gender in the second half of the twentieth century. Writing intimately and frankly about her relationships, Maggie asks pertinent questions about love, sex, loss, parental duties and death. She tells how her understanding was transformed by seeing herself in the wider framework of animal life on earth. This remarkable memoir celebrates the joy and beauty of a short life on a hospitable planet.
