Prose and Verse Celebrating Grandparenthood

By Elizabeth Cairns

about the book
The changing role of the grandparent over the years is the subject of this absorbing anthology. Through excerpts from many eras and countries, this book explores the complex relationship between grandparent and grandchild. The feelings of the children for their grandparents range from awe - even fear - to unswerving love. Along with extracts from the literature of Russia, France, Germany, Victorian and twentieth century Britain, there are fascinating glimpses into childhoods in Ladakh and Calcutta, ancient and contemporary China, Birmingham Alabama and an Indian tribe in Canada, Iraq, Guyana, colonial Rhodesia and among the !Kung in the Kalahari.
A delightful 'dipping into' book for anyone, and a gem as a present to a grandparent.
