‘Wise, witty and steadfast, Alan Brownjohn is one of the most reliably enjoyable of writers.’
‘An extraordinarily intimate, pitch-perfect recreation of not only the very taste and smell of austerity Britain but the whole sensibility of an era.’
David Kynaston, author of Austerity Britain
‘Without resort to impasto period colour Alan Brownjohn evokes…lower-middle-class suburban southeast London…of 1946–7…The insular, timid post-war world he conjures is engrossing…delicately etched.
