Staying Close to the River by Ken Worpole
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Ken Worpole reflects on memories of friends and places he has known and loved. Through a series of letters, this book takes readers to the source of things, charting a route through four generations of family life, the political progress of the left, the cities of the world and human fallibility. The book is a testimony to the art of detailed evocation and observation, whether sweating on the road to Tuscany, meditating on the pain of strenuous cycling or discussing the arrival of "Dallas" on Russian TV. Ken Worpole is the author of "Dockers and Detectives", "Saturday Night or Sunday Morning? From Arts to Industry - New Forms of Cultural Policy" with Geoff Mulgan and "Towns for People: New Issues in Urban Policy".
