Of Mates & Marbles

Of Mates & Marbles by Neil R. Berry

Of Mates & Marbles is a wonderful book packed full of memories from growing up in Brisbane, Paddington in the Sixties.  The author, Neil R. Berry relives his childhood in a candid fashion.  Some of my favourite stories revolve around firecrackers in letter boxes  and scooter rides down hills so fast, sparks literally flew when braking (if you know hilly Paddington, you will understand how scary any bike/skate/scooter ride can be).  Neil grew up in a street not far from our bookshop and it is wonderful to learn the history of these streets, when trams once ruled Latrobe. 

Although Novel Lines Bookshop primarily stocks rare, quality and out-of-print books. Neil is a self published author and in support of this we are holding several copies of his book in store.  Since the recent airplay on 4BC Radio we have already had to reorder for Christmas!  Of Mates & Marble is $25.00AUS, paperback and 178 pages.
