Summary

Roberta Taylor has written a bittersweet and ultimately unforgettable memoir of her early life in South London in the 50s. Too Many Mothers is a portrait of an embattled family at war with itself and the outside world. From petty crime to pet monkeys, tender romance to emotional blackmail, illegitimacy, adoption, and even murder. You won't be able to put this book down!

Too Many Mothers

I love this audiobook, I have listened to it over and over again, it is a very down to earth account of a childhood interlaced with true stories of the authors colourful family. Brilliant.

The stories Mum used to tell

A basic and sometimes brutal story of real life in the East End of London 90 years ago twists and turns and sometimes quite unexpected.
