On the Milk


As a fourteen year old bursting with energy and life, Willie lied about his age to get a job on the milk truck. Well, maturity was called for. Delivering milk may not be everyone's idea of a glamorous start to your working life but it came to represent far more than Willie and his best friend Gordon could possibly imagine. Their eyes were swiftly opened to the big bad/good world and so they quickly learnt the vital necessity of thinking on their toes. Despite the hard backdrop of an industrial town ("The Ruskies wouldn't drop the atom bomb on Dundee; there's nothing here worth bombing"), this is a fabulous story of boys growing up in the sixties, of camaraderie and optimism, innocence and the harshness of life.
