London Belongs to Me, Norman Collins

Regular price €9.00

London Belongs to Me is a Dickensian romp through working-class London on the eve of the Second World War.  

Mr Josser, a buttoned-up clerk, returns home to his lodging-house in Kennington with the clock he has received as a retirement gift.

The other residents of No.10 Dulcimer Street include faded actress Connie; tinned food-loving Mr Puddy; widowed landlady Mrs Vizzard and flashy young mechanic Percy Boon, whose foray into stolen cars descends into something much worse.

“One of the great city novels: a sprawling celebration of the comedy, the savagery, the eccentricity and the quiet heroism at the heart of ordinary London life” - Sarah Waters

Norman Collins (1907-1982) was a British writer, and later a radio and television executive.
