Singing in the Streets: A Glasgow Memoir



Remembering our roots is the answer to revival.

In Singing in the Streets Maria Fyfe tells her story from her upbringing in the Gorbals on the south bank of the River Clyde to her election as a Member of Parliament for Glasgow Maryhill.

Fyfe takes the reader through the realities of living and growing up in the aftermath of ww2 to the pivotal days of her early life in the Labour Party.

She offers a beautifully written personal, nostalgic and sometimes comic view of late-20th century Scotland. She considers class, sexism and politics and the progress that has been made - or has yet to be achieved.

From council house to the House of Commons, Fyfe shows the reader that change is possible.

We cannot wallow in misery. We have to fight.
