Summary Bagels & Bacon is a rites of passage story that will appeal to both young and old. It attempts to shed a largely humorous, but sometimes serious light, on the relations between an ethnic minority and the wider community. Its attitude to Judaism, in particular, and religions in general, is irreverent. The work is also a nostalgic record of growing up in the East End during the postwar period, and attempts to convey a liking of London and more importantly a love of history to the reader. Within the Jewish community it might arouse interest, even controversy, but in wider terms it tries to portray the East End before the dawn of multiculturalism and political correctness. The author, a baby boomer (now turned pensioner), tells with genuine affection and warmth his family story peopled by a host of hilarious characters.
