“Camberton’s second novel, first published in 1951, is a coming of age portrayal of ‘down Hackney’, home of David Hirsch, who steadily leaves behind his Jewish upbringing in adolescence to explore the wider world of London. Typically there is a wide array of humorous characters in his portrayal of Hackney and the more cosmopolitan world Hirsch is drawn towards.”
