Tom Grove sucks in his first breath in 1952 in London's East End. It's a poverty stricken area brimming with Cockney characters who are tough and sharp witted. When his parents move to Wimbledon for a new start events don't go to plan. Tom's life is thrown into turmoil. Tragedy, shock news from America, racy and comical escapades fill this account of Tom's uphill journey from boy to man. The book is littered with rhymes that capture poignant moments as well as humorous episodes in his fight for survival. When he becomes a high flying Trader in London's Money Market his lifestyle is transported to one of champagne and women. After losing it all he launches himself in to many ventures - stand up comedian, gardener to the UK's largest drug importer, film extra, lorry driver, etc. with some hilarious results. Despite constant setbacks Tom's character stands firm. This is a story of one man's ability to overcome adversity with humour and inspiration.

    "Broad Soldiers by Chris Sullivan" The first thing that strikes you when you pick up 'Broad Soldiers' is the unusual combination of prose and poetry all in one book. However, it works perfectly. The poems are a joy and highlight the bubbly prose style. It really is a page-turner as the story of Tom Grove trips along merrily through his life and loves in London. At times it is sad and melancholic and then it's hilarious and rumbustious. Chris Sullivan has combined witty writing with the poet's craft to great effect. I will definitely be keeping an eye out for his next offering. Highly recommended. D.Johnston
