Description: D/J is good. The book is in good used condition.The book is based around Ellen's 'pianoplayer' father, seldom sober but kind-hearted to a fault, he is a talented pianist whose love of the bottle has reduced him to accompanying silent films in flea-pit movie houses and competing in marathon non-stop play-in competitions. Ellen recalls her father with fond affection, and we find ourselves transported back into the world of twopenny worth fish 'n' chips, seaside rock and grasping landlords as Ellen recalls their varied and colourful adventures.
