An Echo from the Green Hills


These articles have been previously published in national and local British newspapers and magazines and now collected in one book. They start with four London walks around Camden, Hampstead, Highgate and on to Petticoat Lane and Camden Market taking in the Monument. There are several pieces on Hertford where I live with notes on its history, culture and people. Also included are articles on Englishmen who have contributed something unique to our culture.


I have tried to keep it very English but have included one very eccentric Irishman and a French performer Joseph Pujol. The editor of Stage magazine wrote to me saying that they do not normally publish articles on foreign acts but this one deserved a wider audience for a variety star that almost defies description.
