Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Betjeman's one of my favourite people and not only for his poetry. He championed the preservation of Victorian buildings in London, including the Euston arches, that were sadly demolished, and the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel. This book describes his childhood, his gentle mother and his bossy father, both of whom left large, deep scratches on his developing personality..
