Hi there

Someone has pointed out to me that Jonathan Meades published a novel set in Forest Hill and Upper Norwood - anyone read it? It's called 'The Fowler Family Business'. It doesn't really sound like my sort of read (I don't really go for 'inventively nasty, gruesomely comic') but thought I'd mention it in case anyone has. More details here:

Sorry if this has been posted before - I did a search but couldn't find anything!

I read it when it was published 2-3 years ago. The novel istself is no masterpiece, but there are some evocative descriptions of Forest Hill, particularly the area around Ringmore Rise, of which Jonathan Meades is a big fan
