1 Kitch, Chris Pavement for My Pillow
London Orion 1997 0752803409 / 9780752803401 Hard Cover Near Fine Near Fine 
A near Fine unmarked copy (Fine apart from age darkening to page edges) with near Fine dustjacket which is not price clipped. x + 197 pages. Introduction by Robin Waterfield. Interspersed with joyful diary notes about her present life - studying for her MA, walking her dogs and living on her boat and then back in All Saints' Convent in Oxford - this is the remarkable story of a woman who has succeeded in transforming herself from pitiful baglady to scholar and writer. Chris Kitch was born illegitimate and brought up in the rough streets of Bradford. Her step-father did not want her, all three of her children were taken into care soon after each was born. In and out of prison with no home, she existed in a twilight world of drugs and alcohol, prostitution and homelessness. Chris survived but her beloved friend Jean didn't, dying of drug abuse. With the pavement her pillow, Piccadilly toilets her 'home' and narcotics her only friend, she dragged herself out of the gutter and into years of rehabilitation, and her thirst for knowledge was reawakened and in 1993 she was awarded her BA Honours degree. **** NOT EX LIB ****
