Joseph falls for a pretty lady from the sweet shop. Will his romantic gesture pay off?

Strange Ways Stories are written and illustrated by artist and storyteller Myrna Shoa. The 4 stories - The Sofa, The Marriage, The Box of Chocolates and Rosie & the Iron Bar - are tales passed down through the generations about a family of immigrants living in Manchester in the early part of the last century. Grandfather Meyer and his family fled their native Dvinsk in Russia to begin a new life in Manchester. These tales of life in and around the Strangeways area present a cast of colourful characters, stunningly brought to life by Myrna's artistry. Printed in full colour. Price £6.95 each or buy the full set for £25.00

  • Thank you for this story

    I can’t understand why Ina in the Box of Chocolates’ story wanted something more from Joseph. After all he had bought her the ticket for the cinema. Thank you for this story. It reminds us all of stories about our families and friends from our cultures.

  • Your stories speak the truth

    Your stories speak the truth about your family. In our cultures we hide the truth. I thank you for sharing the stories.
