Reviews

I was charmed by this evocative and tender portrait of an extraordinary street and its extraordinary inhabitants -- Deborah Moggach
William Miller is not just writing about a street. This is about family, love, art and the whole of life, and it's wonderful -- Jeremy Vine, BBC2
A wonderful insight into life surrounded by the culturati of the late 20th century - funny, wise and finely observed through glasses that are far from rose-tinted. -- Shaun Bythell, author of A Diary of a Bookseller
A love letter to a unique and special time, place and family -- Dermot O'Leary
It's a brilliant book, a touching, funny view of life for the family of a remarkable person who, like many remarkable people, could be hard to live with. -- Kirstie Allsopp
Stuffed with hilarious literary gossip and anecdote * Observer *
has a charm of its own. His portrait of his father, exasperated yet tinged with affection, is beautifully drawn, and he's particularly good at putting himself in his own childhood shoes. -- John Preston * Mail on Sunday *
