Publisher's Summary

Shirley Pitts, the eldest of six children, was born upside down on November 24, 1934. Her "career" began by thieving bread off doorsteps and coal from coal carts. Her father's bungled attempts at black marketeering and her dipsomaniac mother's inadequacies made Shirley resolve to be not only a first-class thief but also the best mother her six children could wish for. Before she died Shirley told her story to Lorraine - the story of a generous, brave, and beautiful woman with a huge sense of fun and a love of life.

Interesting until the last hour

Interesting story well told unfortunately spoiled by the self indulgent psycho babble at the end.
