Review: As Time Goes By

User Review  - Goodreads

I liked the idea of this book so much more than the actual book. The elderly Lockwood sisters were absolutely my favourite characters and the love Bowling has for London came through loud and clear, but this didn't make as much of an impact on me as I'd expected. Read full review

About the author (2011)

Harry was born in 1931 in a back street off the Tower Bridge Road. Only when his own children began to ask questions about the war, did Harry realise how many stories he had to tell. He became known as 'the King of Cockney sagas', and he wrote eighteen bestselling novels of London life. Sadly Harry died in 1999 and the Harry Bowling Prize was set up in his memory.
