Connecting Crouch End and Hornsey with news, views and information

This is another book I picked up when my middle daughter moved out. I had no idea she read such filth. The graphic encounters with the prostitutes do certainly draw you in to the story, which then changes entirely to look at the oddness of the relationships arising out of the multiplicity of standards the Victorians managed to adopt. I was gripped throughout even when there was nothing salacious to whet my appetite. And there's a bit of a twist in the tail Wikipedia says it is post modern but that didn't matter , I enjoyed it any way. And the Beeb have dramatised it. I am sure this link will disappear when the series finishes.
