Thanks to my friend, Alvan, who recently sent me these lovely photos from his collection, all taken in August 2010!

A. J. Cronin Biography Update

As it would be A J Cronin's birthday today (he was born 19th July 1896) I wanted to give an update about the wonderful new biography by Alan Davies. I now have my copy!! It is skilfully written and extremely interesting for anyone who loves Cronin's works. You will not find more details or more fascinating photos of his life anywhere else and I can highly recommend this book.

Please see my previous blog about this which shows some of the places where you can buy your own copy - click here
