Summary
  • A memoir of growing up gay in a straight world and surviving the tough streets of small-town Scotland during the Thatcher years
  • "On October 12, 1984, Margaret Thatcher miraculously survives an IRA bomb in Brighton, England. In small-town Scotland Damian Barr's world explodes as his parents divorce. Only eight years old, he soon learns that he, too, must survive. As Thatcher takes hold, she makes greed good, snatching his school milk and his dad's job at the steelworks. But she also promises that if you just work hard enough you can get away. Trusting Maggie, Damian plots his escape. Facing betrayal, brutality at home and the terror of AIDS, he finds that stories, and friends, can save your life. Heartbreaking and heartwarming, Maggie & Me is a darkly witty memoir about surviving in spite of, and maybe because of, the Iron Lady"--Back cover
