"Set in a fictional Lancashire town in 1929, In loving memory depicts the hilarious events that occur in an undertaker's business when the owner dies, leaving his sensible widow Ivy to carry on with the help of her naïve and clumsy nephew, Billy.

The L-shaped room by Lynne Reid Banks( Visual )

5 editions published between 2007 and 2017 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The L-Shaped Room stars Leslie Caron as a unmarried, pregnant French girl. Arranging for an abortion (illegal at that time), she takes up residence in a ramshackle British boarding house where most of the other residents are also outcasts of society. Many of the character types were new to films of the era, but have since become cliches: the understanding young black, the lesbian actress, the prostitutes without golden hearts. There is also a Christopher Isherwood type writer (Tom Bell) who observes the passing parade and writes a book on the subject."
