Whilst all of the stories are of Eastbourne or elsewhere within Sussex, they will have a universal appeal. As the author himself says in his epilogue, people love the stories that he tells because they make them feel good. I believe this is because most of his stories are about events, some of them extraordinary that have been experienced by ordinary people. Askaroff has rustled up for us a plateful of nostalgia and nostalgia is very attractive to people because it takes them back in time, oftentimes to lives lived more simply and less technologically involved than our lives are today.
I recommend this book to anybody with an interest in history, social history and nostalgia. I would say a perfect Sunday read when you can leave this modern world behind for a few hours.

England, its history and its people, as only he can.
The mix of recent and age old events and stories made it all the more interesting and the "people pictures" were spot on. I could imagine them relaying the stories to the author.
A few typos are easily forgiveable in a heart warming collection of stories of everyday life (and some not so everyday!)
