Gangsters and Whores


Gangsters and Whores had me captivated from start to finish  We have all heard of the Tilly Devine’s, Kate Leigh’s and Squizzy Taylor’s as part of our history but in reality, speaking for myself, knew nothing about them.  


Garry S Willmott has brought these and many more of the colourful folk from that era to life in this book, including photos of them, the places they lived and the areas and places they frequented. I can now understand what their life must have been like and why they lived as they did. There is a special place in my heart for Tilly Devine, achieving what she did after such a traumatic childhood. Absolutely a book everyone should read and learn more about our history.

In a delightful romp down memory lane, funny, factual and fast Garry has brought back many memories good and bad from the 'roaring 60's'. 
Garry's style of mixing fact with some fiction makes it incredibly easy to read, cover to cover in one sitting.
A great read for anyone that was there even if you can remember it.
