1 Courtenay, Tom Dear Tom - Letters from Home
London Doubleday 2000 038560095X / 9780385600958 First Hard Cover Near Fine Near Fine 
A near Fine unmarked copy (Fine part from age toning to closed edges with near Fine dustjacket which is not price clipped. 294 pages. 39 illustrations. Tom Courtenay was born in Hull in 1937 and brought up near the fish dock where his father worked. When he left home for university, his mother, Annie, wrote to him every week and when her letters became more searching and more intimate in response to Tom's unhappiness he kept every one, not knowing that after her early death they were to become his most treasured possessions. Tom has selected the best of them to include in this book and interwoven with them a portrait of what was going on in his life in the heady days of the early 1960's when successful young working class actors were coming to the fore. Partly a memoir of a working-class way of life that has gone for ever, partly a powerfully moving record of the love between mother and son, partly a portrait of the artist as a young actor.
