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
