“I lived in Disraeli Avenue, in between Gladstone Street and Campbell-Bannerman Road.” The neighbors all pronounced it as “ Dizz- rah- el-lee” (four syllables) Avenue. My mother’s house was a semi-detached type on a street with 31 similar-looking houses. They looked identical but I knew that they weren’t. There were differences.” Jude-- in search of Adam. The houses on Disraeli Avenue all looked the same-- the same shape, the same size, but behind each colored front door there was a story, a secret, a need, for instance: Bill Williams is lost, Aunty Maggie longs to be young and attractive, and Crystal is searching to find out more about Adam. Tales of debt, infidelity, incest, love, and loss are all combined and woven into a mosaic of working class life. As the characters in search of Adam are given individual voice, the flashes connect into the making of Disraeli Avenue. Download this FREE e-Book today!
