Summary
Allan Ahlberg was adopted as a baby. In 1938 he was picked up in London by his new mother and taken back to Oldbury in the Black Country. Now he is one of the most successful children's book writers in the world. In 'The Bucket' he describes an oddly enchanted childhood lived out in an industrial town during the 1940s, in conditions which today we might describe as 'deprived'. He writes of a father in overalls smelling of wood shavings and oil, of a tough and fiercely protective mother who cries when he discovers that he is adopted, of life assurance policies and fearsome bacon slicers, of half-remembered trips to his mother's sister's grave and to the bluebell woods
