Tim Bradford

A London Country Diary

For fifteen years, Tim Bradford has meandered round the quiet streets of his North London home, seeking out the ordinary and the extraordinary, the sublime and the ridiculous. A London Country Diary documents his wanderings — he attempts to rescue a deer in Clissold Park, talks to a magical old man in Holloway, breaks up a fight in Stoke Newington and has issues with foxes in Highbury. And that's just the beginning.
All of life is in these pages. Well, some. OK, just a little bit. But with its idiosyncratic wit and charming illustrations, this book is a timely reminder that you can find beauty, humour and life, wherever you call home.

Цитати

    Most people, if they pray, pray for material things – cars, houses, holidays, cash – or stuff like getting someone nice-looking to love them. I’ve always prayed for one thing (and when I say prayed I mean hoped really hard with my eyes closed): that a really good cafe would open up just down the end of my road.

    The shopkeeper was not fazed. ‘Bloody Highbury. Every time I bring up some topic of conversation, one of our customers will go, “I’ve written a book about that”.

    Everyone has a favourite tree. Don’t they? Like a soulmate, but with bark and leaves and squirrels living in it and dogs pissing against the side of it.
