    eBook The L Shaped Room Kindle ↠ The L eBook ☆ ✓ treatmentinlithuania.co.uk shaped download, room ebok, The L mobile, The L Shaped Room PDF/EPUBIt’s such a drag being an unwilling member of the PC Police scanning fiction from the 1950s for standard racism and homophobia and grilling authors about their gender politics so that when you choose to read a novel published in 1960 about a 27 year old woman having an illegitimate baby you feel you want to lay all the righteousness to one side and jump into this different pre swinging time just as you would a Jane Austin crinolinefest But this author doesn’t make it easy to do that because she shoves the racism right in your face with her various Jewish characters and her big friendly loveable black jazz guitarist Lynne Reid Banks did a 50 year anniversary of the L Shaped Room radio programme for the BBC and said that when she reread it for that programme the racism shocked her “The prejudices exist

    eBook The L Shaped Room Kindle ↠ The L eBook ☆ ✓ treatmentinlithuania.co.uk shaped download, room ebok, The L mobile, The L Shaped Room PDF/EPUBThis is a mixed bag of a story It's good It tells an important interesting story But it's a story of its time late 1950s with racism prejudices and phobias It's hard to imagine thankfully a 27 year old woman being thrown out of her parental home for getting pregnant and being called a tart The racial slurs towards Blacks and Jews are atrociousHowever if one reads this as a book of its time this is a warm heartfelt story of growth including getting beyond racial slurs class distinctions and the stigma of being an unwed mother Jane herself is ashamed at the beginning of this story Over the next 9 months she matures and grows She becomes aware of her own insecurities phobias fears prejudicesand their irrelevance Jane is an endearing character At first she came across as arrogant and snotty but maturity gives her depth Despite this story's time based deficiencies this story is
