The Terrible History of Fulham

Despite the ever-busy hands of modern developers, the bird’s eye view of Fulham as one crosses the bridge from Putney is much the same as that which travellers might have glimpsed a century ago.  The ancient church of All Saints still looms on the edge of Bishop’s Park with its brick tower and surrounding trees. A breath away, is the grey stripe of the Thames that is London’s jugular, its muddy banks curving towards old Hammersmith, still busy with boats and canoes and barges and swans.

So says the author of this affectionate collection of tales from his beloved home borough. The budding reporter; the old couple who find there are still things they don’t know about each other; the private eye; things discussed in pubs; the reversing fortunes of two siblings.

These stories will amuse and beguile – and some punchlines will creep up on the unwary! So readers should keep their wits about them and prepare to be entertained.
