Goggle-Eyes

(2 reviews with an average rating of 2 out of 5)

Publisher: Penguin

When Helen Johnston rushes out of registration in tears, Kitty Killin is sent after her. Kitty is not only a great storyteller, she is also the world's leading expert in mothers with unwanted boyfriends.

So it is that Helen and Kitty spend a morning closeted together in the privacy of the Lost Property Cupboard, while Kitty tells the story of Goggle-Eyes, once the most unwanted boyfriend of them all.

Goggle-Eyes is over fifty, grey-haired and gets in the way of Kitty's time with her mother. His greatest fault, though, is that he doesn't agree with their strong-held beliefs about nuclear disarmament, and doesn't mind telling them so.

This is a highly readable and amusing story dealing with a range of emotions and issues.
