Roland Camberton (Ne Henry Cohen) (1921-1965)
Rain on the Pavements. 1951.
“Camberton’s second novel, first published in 1951, is a coming of age portrayal of ‘down Hackney’, home of David Hirsch, who steadily leaves behind his Jewish upbringing in adolescence to explore the wider world of London. Typically there is a wide array of humorous characters in his portrayal of Hackney and the more cosmopolitan world Hirsch is drawn towards.”
