O Is Fir Ingin
Mae Stewart picks up where she left in the hugely successful Dae Yeh Mind Thon Time and continues her delightful memoirs of growing up in Dundee. In O is Fir Ingin, she recalls life in the 1940s and 50s and recounts tales from school, days spent playing games and singing songs in the streets with her friends, Christmases with her family and, later, as a teenager coming of age, the world of entertainment Dundee provided with its picture houses and dance halls. It was a lively time, and Mae was in the midst of it. Here, she vividly evokes 'whit it wiz like' back then - before televisions and computers took over the world and children had to make their own fun and games. O is Fir Ingin is a nostalgic and lovingly observed trip down memory lane, full of joy and heartwarming tales.
