At last! I have completed my novel about growing up on a post-war prefab estate. It’s called “Prefabulous Days”, and it’s based loosely on memories of life on the Pilgrims Way estate, Kingsbury NW9. It’s now available on Amazon as an e-book (2.99) and a paperback (£6.55).
Here’s the blurb:
“On the Friars Walk prefab estate, there’s a cast iron box, about the size of a small wardrobe, set in concrete. The grown-ups think it’s something to do with their electricity supply because it hums. For the estate kids it’s just there to be climbed on, but some believe it’s home to a race of tiny people. They call it the Green Thing.
A few yards away, the nearest prefab is home to the Dobson family. Made in a factory out of war surplus aluminium and assembled on a wooded hillside, the new all electric home is a revelation for bus conductor Harry, his wife Olive and two sons. Just the ticket. They can hardly believe their luck.
