The true story of a young man's adventures as a Fortune Teller, Grafter, Knocker-Worker and Mounted Pitcher on the Market Places and Fairgrounds of a modern but still romantic England.

Condition: Very good, in very good dust jacket. Dust jacket spine faded, with wear at head.


I adore this book. I read over and over when I bought it for 10p in the '70s. I tried to buy the film rights for it in 1990 but sadly it got messy. However, the romance of a modern but old fashioned part of England that we all yearn for leaps out from the pages. An age when Thomas the Tank ruled supreme. You won’t just read this book; I promise you will bathe in it. Enjoy.
