God Forgotten Face

'God forgotten face' my second book on England is about Plymouth, a city in Devon in the south west of England. I chose it because  i have visited all my life as my family is from there. It struck me as a place far from the cultural centre of london. i wanted to see, what was left of my grand parents culture. I found a tough place, full of resilience, humour and generosity. Bombed flat and mostly unprotected in the war, history hangs heavy here.  I hope to have uncovered an ongoing sense of pride in being a 'janner' even in the face of the decline and neglect this part of England has suffered.
