NICK HORNBY CHARACTER

Tuesday, 3 February 2015

Here is a photograph of my father, Tom Sloan, Jack Hampshire and David Attenborough helping to clear up after a charity cricket match on Kew Green, some time in the late 1960s.  I present it in evdience of my assertion that Tom Sloan was a dapper chap, which i think I made in connection with Nick Hornby's latest novel, in which Tom Sloan is, rather oddly, a character.  It is not at all a bad book, in its own rather gentle, Hornbyish way.  It is called Funny Girl.
