'Full of life characters gossip and all the richness of the local community' Sir David Jason'A compelling full selection box of a story' Sanjeev KohliA Radio 4 Book of the WeekBritain is a nation of shopkeepers and the story of corner shops is the story of who we are I've seen you on a Sunday morning nipping out to get a pint of milk or to grab a newspaper I came to know a lot about you; whether your politics leaned to the right or left whether you were gay or straight and whether you were plagued by cash flow problems or had enough dis. I bought this book out of curiosity as for a few years in the early 1960s I too lived over a corner shop in Caversham It brought back memories of ice creams and crisps always available after school of Huntley and Palmers broken biscuits sold by the pound from huge tins and mum making sure she had plenty of pies and sausage rolls for the garage workers along the road A different era and our stay was short but another facet of the ever changing shape of the corner shop Long may they thrive

    Loved this book. It felt like reading fiction, yet I recognised and remembered all of the events from my early years to modern times. The glimpse into the shopkeepers lives was brilliant, but the review of the evolving state of a nation, put simply, made absolute genius reading. A book that will be both enjoyable and educational for anyone, but especially those born in the 50s, 60s and 70s.

    A good picture painted of growing up as an Asian child of shopkeeper parents and the trials and hard work behind the counter. More of a social history and factual account but still well documented.
