The Gorbals Trilogy

UK Publisher: Black & White Publishing

Growing Up in the Gorbals describes Ralph Glasser’s impoverished childhood and adolescence in Glasgow’s slum tenements; Gorbals Boy at Oxford takes him, with a scholarship, to Oxford; into the army; and back to wartime Oxford. With Gorbals VoicesSiren Songs, Ralph Glasser concluded his brilliant autobiographical sequence: venturing in to the perplexing, wayward world of postwar London.
