Townies takes you back to the 1950s and 1960s and to the streets and schools of St. John’s, NL. The story follows a young Robert and his interactions with his fellow classmates who were educated by the Irish Christian Brothers during a time of poverty and authority.
I found this book a most enjoyable read and very insightful. As I would be referred to in this book as a “bayman” not to be trusted, this book gave me great insight in to the lives of townies. At the end of the book I realized that perhaps townies and baymen are more alike than not. I would highly recommend this book – it’s a great read.
