This is the cover of my new book ‘The Way to Hornsey Rise – An Autobiographical Novel’. Publication on 23 March 2023. Many thanks to William Boyd, Ferdinand Mount, Travis Elborough, Francis Gilbert and my agent for their kind words.
I am delighted that my autobiographical novel THE WAY TO HORNSEY RISE will be published in due course by the brilliant Holland Park Press.

Pre-orders would be much appreciated.
Below is a review by Francis Gilbert, writer, critic and educationalist.
