A Bundle of Rags – Len Webster




Ten-year-old, Jimmy Willson claims to be the youngest rag and bone merchant in town. And when a rug with a strange design is given to him by a lonely old lady he recognises it as a very valuable piece of work.


Finding out just how valuable is only one of Jimmy’s many problems during a hectic fortnight in which he learns more about other people and about himself.


For this is the fortnight when Jimmy Willson really grows up…


Set near Birmingham in the Black Country of the late-1950s, A Bundle of Rags is a moving story of how a young boy comes to terms with his world.


Written in the tradition of working class writers such as Stan Barstow, John Braine, Barry Hines and Alan Sillitoe.
