Gloucester Crescent is a curving, leafy street hidden between Camden Town and Primrose Hill, unremarkable in many ways, unless you notice the lady in the van parked outside one house, and the famous-looking residents crossing the road - which of course you wouldn't if you were just one of the local children who played in the street and its gardens every day. Written through the eyes of a growing child, this is the story of a family and their circle of well-known, left-wing, idealistic and intellectual friends, who all lived in one of the most iconic streets in London in the 60s, 70s and 80s.

A well put together account of growing up in a street full of well known personalities incl Alan Bennett.I was interested to note that the author lives in composer Vaughan William's former house.Despite not being academic at school he has made a good career.
