It's out of my hands now!

Have spent the past week poring over proofs and photos to make sure everything is ship-shape for you, dear reader!

Now it's back with the publishers who are sending it to print next month. I have loved looking at the photos again, here is a sneak preview. These are of my grandmother who features large in the book and Tom as a child.

By the way, copies are due before Christmas and Unbound will contact you shortly before to confirm address. Official pub date is 21 January...hold your breath about whether we can have a party or not...I haven't forgotten all those pledges fo drinks in the Groucho etc - it will happen one day!

Grete when she first met my grandfather - she was considered a real beauty.

Here she is again, still glamorous

Dad, his baby brother Sascha (Alexander) and older half-brother Honza (John), shortly after the death of Hermann Ungar

On holiday in Rab, Yugoslavia in 1936/7, Grete, Sascha and Tom, all blissfully unaware of what was about to happen at home
