Angela Hewins – The Dillen – TBR

The Dillen

The Dillen

The Back of the Book: George Hewins was born in a Stratford doss-house at the zenith of the Victorian age.  Barely literate and undersized (hence his nickname, ‘the dillen’ or runt) he possessed an extraordinary gift:  he was a story-teller of genius in the old oral tradition.  The tale he tells is his tale, and the tale of those he met, from the 1870s to the aftermath of the Great War, recorded by his grandson’s wife as he approached his hundredth year.
