From a life on the streets to the glory of the boxing ring. London's East End, 1953: Albert Kemp is a lonely widower, whose only son was killed in the war. Now he works in a pub by the railway arches. Downstairs is a traditional bar, upstairs is a famous boxing gym. It is here that Albert brings Danny, a fatherless boy who he rescues from gang life on the streets. But as Danny begins to grow into a champion, the predators start to circle, luring him with glittering promises back into a life of crime. Will Danny listen to his wise old mentor? Or will the prospect of fame and money be too tempting?

Travelling tinker man & other rhymes by David Essex( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Poems from the heart by a man who has lived - and loved - life to the full. In the 70s he was a huge pop star, with Number 1 hits like 'Rock On' and 'Hold Me Close'. In the 80s and 90s he became a star of the stage with lead roles in GODSPELL and MUTINY! Most recently he became a Number 1 hardcover bestseller with his autobiography, OVER THE MOON. Now comes a wonderful collection of his poetry and lyrics. Here are nostalgic poems recalling his family's traveller roots, such as 'Travelling Tinker Man', and 'Fairground Attraction', verses filled with memories of his warm and loving boyhood, like 'Beano Day', 'Dad' and 'Upton Park' - and poetry reliving the highs and lows of fame, such as 'Celebrity' and 'Like Moths to a Flame'

War of the worlds: It began with odd atmospheric disturbances taking place on Mars, followed by the arrival of Martians just outside of London. At first the Martians seemed laughable, hardly able to move in Earth's comparatively heavy gravity -- even enough to raise themselves out of the pit created when their spaceship landed. But soon death machines 100-feet tall rise up from the pit and begin laying waste to the surrounding land. As England's military suffers defeat after defeat, London is evacuated and all hope seems lost as it becomes clear that the Martians are not conquering humans, but corralling them as food
