Of Love and Hunger

From the publisher:

The key literary figure in the pubs of post-war Fitzrovia, Maclaren-Ross pulled together his dispersed energies to write two great books: the posthumously published Memoirs of the Forties and this spectacular novel of the Depression, Of Love and Hunger – harsh, vivid, louche and slangy it deserves a permanent place alongside Coming Up for Air and Hangover Square.
