Product Description

“A lost classic from the teeming world of Depression-era London.” DJ Taylor

Angel Pavement is one of the great London novels. First published in 1930, it is a social panorama of the city seen largely through the eyes of the employees of the firm Twigg & Dersingham, on the first floor of No. 8, Angel Pavement. Business is bad and getting worse. The firm is fighting for its life and its staff are gripped by the fear of insolvency and redundancy. Into their midst descends the mysterious and charming Mr. Golspie and his beautiful daughter, Lena. Together they set in train a sequence of events that will transform the lives of everyone who works there.

Angel Pavement provides readers with a vivid picture of ordinary London life before the war, set against the background of the great depression.

“A novel by a man who thoroughly enjoys the whole spectacle of life and can communicate his enjoyment.” The Daily Telegraph

“This is a superb example of his ability. It is packed with life and death and real people and colour and smells and the sounds of music and the tastes of food and drink.” The Observer
