Set in Edwardian Birmingham, "Baker's Dozen"
is based on the autobiography "Her People"
by award winning author Kathleen Dayus
. "Baker's Dozen" is a compelling and poignant reminiscence of working class childhood.
Kathleen Dayus's early years were overshadowed by a constant struggle with poverty, ill health and regular visits to the pawnbrokers, yet her memoir is full of humour and rich in incident.
