Description

A unique life story from a true survivor, read by the author.

Born in the tough East End of Glasgow and married into one of the city’s most notorious criminal families, Janey Godley’s young life was far from ordinary. From the grim and far-from-swinging ’60s, to the discos of the ’70s, to the tidal wave of heroin addiction which engulfed Glasgow’s East End during the ’80s, Janey was witness to an extraordinary underworld – as well as religious sectarianism, abject poverty and a frightening family of in-laws. Throughout it all, her indomitable spirit – and her vivid sense of humour – kept her alive.

A vivid, intimate and darkly funny account of a life less ordinary, Handstands in the Dark tells the story of how one girl escaped a chaotic family and became one of the UK’s most popular comedic talents.
