Streets Ahead: Life after City Lightsby Keith Waterhouse
Continuing the first volume of his memoirs in "City Lights", Keith Waterhouse records his arrival in Fleet Street in the early 1950s. He evokes an almost Dickensian world of clanking printing works, but one in which he sensed profound social change was soon to manifest itself in an explosion of New Wave books, plays and films like "Lucky Jim", "Look Back in Anger" and his own "Billy Liar". Reliving the excitement of its success, his partnership with Willis Hall, writing for the theatre, screen and television, and their sojourn in Hollywood, Waterhouse creates an impression of an eventful and exhausting era.
