Seen through the eyes of earnest thirteen-year-old Howard, this semi-autobiographical tale about a Jewish family in north-west London and Soho evokes the post-war era with affection and humour.
Harold Carlton was born in Reading in 1942 and moved to London at the age of one. He attended Kilburn Grammar School and St Martin's School of Art. In 1988 he wrote a novel, Labels, under his own name; it sold more than a million copies in the USA and was translated into seven languages. His next novel, Sacrifice, was published in 1991, followed by The Scarf, a history of the silk square. He now divides his time between Pimlico in London and Palma de Mallorca, where he is working on a new novel.
