Up the Junction

by Nell Dunn - £8.99  Little, Brown Book Group (2013)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781844089826 | ISBN 10: 1844089827

Published in 1963, Up the Junction won the John Llewellyn Rhys Memorial Prize, was adapted into a film and was the inspiration for the song of the same name.
 
The girls - Rube, Lily and Sylvie - work at McCrindle's sweet factory during the week and on Saturday they go up the Junction in their clattering stilettos, think about new frocks on H.P., drink tea in the cafe, and talk about their boyfriends. In these uninhibited, spirited vignettes of young women's lives in the shabby parts of South London in the sixties, money is scarce and enjoyment to be grabbed while it can.
