Something in Linoleum: A Thirties Education by Paul Vaughan

As a boy in 1934 Paul Vaughan unwittingly became part of a social trend - a great mass migration to the outskirts of London - as his family moved from Brixton to booming New Malden, where their new semi was a mere stroll away from countryside. This was Suburbia, and its outlook was not entirely promising. But Vaughan was so fortunate as to find an inspirational headmaster - John Garrett - at his local grammar school, which boasted a school song composed by Garrett's friend W.H. Auden. In due course he would find his way to Oxford; but as this evocative account testifies, New Malden would never quite leave him.

'Wonderfully readable, wonderfully wry.' Edward Blishen, TES

'Recalled with a Betjemanesque affection and eye for detail.' Peter Parker, Telegraph
