The Two-Pound Tram

(2006)
A novel by

 
 
“A marvelous portrait of the intersection between childhood innocence and grownup experience.”—Kirkus Reviews

The year is 1937, and Hitler has just walked into Austria. Wilfred and Duncan live in a big old house in Sussex, England; they spend their days catching butterflies, and only ever see their parents on Wednesdays for lunch. When their mother elopes and their father takes up with other ladies, they decide that enough is enough: they will leave home, go to London, and buy a tram they have seen in an advertisement. It costs two pounds sterling...The Two-Pound Tram is a classic wartime tale of adventure, and a bittersweet evocation of youth and its triumph over hardship.
