6 editions published between 1999 and 2003 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Few authors can have had a life as traumatic as Dame Catherine Cookson. Her recent death allows at last a frank and full account of her remarkable life, enhanced by her own autobiographical writing hitherto unseen. Catherine Cookson's story is as dramatic as any of her best-selling novels. Born in 1906, the illegitimate daughter of a servant, she was brought up in the slums of Tyneside. Her childhood was marred by violence, abuse, alcoholism and shame. But, determined to escape her situation, Catherine made her way out of the poverty trap by "writing it all out". Her novels became a new genre and her legendary success is contrasted here with a fuller, darker picture of her life
