In Glimpses of Notes Ian Davidson describes in remarkable detail his education at Manchester Grammar School, beginning during the second half of World War Two. A native of Broughton-in-Furness, he brings his acute observational powers to bear on his upbringing in this great northern industrial city and his education at one of the world's great schools. Starting in the Preparatory Department and leaving from the History Sixth Form, he produces wonderful sketches of his fellow pupils and teachers. Manchester was, of course, a major target for German bombers and Ian describes hauntingly the extent of the damage, observed from the bus he caught in north-west Manchester to take him to school south of the city centre. This is a remarkable work of social history, but it is also an account of the development of a young man, growing in independence from his family, but linked inexorably to his roots in the Lake District. His education begins with the accumulation of knowledge, but as he grows and reaches the Sixth Form he develops personal judgement and learns truly to think for himself - with some unexpected results as far as his teachers and High Master are concerned. Ian's remarkable memory allows him to bring to life the physical surroundings in which he grew up over 70 years ago. The behaviour and speech of his schoolmates are vividly represented and readers of all ages will recognise universal characteristics common to different periods of history. This is a book which will entertain and delight anyone connected with, or interested in, the city of Manchester and its Grammar School.

"A New Home is a vivid contribution to a new king of narrative developed during the antebellum period, ethnographic fiction. Kirkland highlights the importance and the drama of local practices and everyday life in Montacute. She traces the way two groups of settlers slowly adjust to each other--the old hands and the newcomers from the East. Dramatizing differences of class and culture, she also shows how the groups finally form a genuine community and a new diverse culture. Kirkland also gives ethnographic fiction an original twist: she satirizes the provincialism and the rigidity of both groups of settlers." -- Publisher's description from paperback back cover.
