    John Simpson is well known as the BBC's leading foreign correspondent, reporting from the front line of conflicts such as the Iraq war. In this engaging memoir, he turns his attention to matters closer to home: his own childhood in 1950s Croydon. His honest and clear-sighted account of the unravelling of his parents' marriage amid the austerity of postwar Britain vividly evokes a vanished era and shows how lives can be irrevocably changed by war.
