Description

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.
