One of the most critically acclaimed memoirs ever written.

One of the ten books - novels, memoirs and one very unusual biography - that make up our Matchbook Classics' series, a stunningly redesigned collection of some of the best loved titles on our backlist.

Lorna sage's outstanding childhood and adolescence brings to life her eccentric family and bizarre upbringing in rural Wales.

The period is evoked through a wickedly funny and deeply intelligent account: from the 1940s, dominated for Lorna by her dissolute but charismatic vicar grandfather, through the 1950s, where the invention of fish fingers revolutionised the lives of housewives like Lorna's mother, to the brink of the 1960s, where Lorna's pregnancy at 16 outraged those around her, an event her grandmother blamed on 'the fiendish invention of sex'.

Bad Blood vividly and wittily explores a vanished time and place, and illuminate the lives of three generations of women.
