Summary
Hannah Lowe's father 'Chick', a half-Chinese, half-black Jamaican immigrant, worked long hours at night to support his family - except that Chick was not an ordinary working man. A legendary gambler, he would vanish into the shadows of London's East End to win at cards or dice, returning during daylight to greet the daughter whose love and respect he courted. Swinging between the Jamaica of her father's troubled childhood and his own violent relationship with his father and his eventual experience of an immigrant's journey to the West, this is a poignant memoir. Lowe evokes the unstable world of card sharps, confidence men and small-time criminals that eventually took its toll on Chick
