This was Suburbia, and its outlook was not entirely promising. But Vaughan was so fortunate as to find an inspirational headmaster - John Garrett - at his local grammar school, which boasted a school song composed by Garrett's friend W.H. Auden. In due course he would find his way to Oxford; but as this evocative account testifies, New Malden would never quite leave him. "Wonderfully readable, wonderfully wry". (Edward Blishen, TES). "Recalled with a Betjemanesque affection and eye for detail". (Peter Parker, "Telegraph").Hide synopsis
