Synopsis

Keep Your Pecker Up is Lyn Rafe-Lawyer’s glorious true saga charting a hundred year span of British and American life during lean and plump times. Deeply rooted in Lyn Rafe-Lawyer’s soul is her Anglo-Saxon heritage of self-deprecation, confidence and courage. Born in the turbulent thirties, her genteel, sanguine childhood was secure until the advent of World War Two. One of London’s first evacuees sent to an unknown destination at age six, she was a witness to an unprecedented era and embarked on a cataclysmic roller coaster ride into a violent world. An impressionable post-war teenager, she merged into Britain´s sagging social and economic matrix grappling with an insidious, stifling and re-emerging class system. Determined to leave behind a bleak existence she ventured to the United States, a modern day immigrant brimming with optimism to begin life anew. Keep Your Pecker Up is at Harvard University Library, The British Library. Oxford University Library and Sam Houston Library.
