Inhaltsangabe: The year is 1953. Britain has a new Queen. The MCC has won back the Ashes. Another BOAC Comet has crashed. We are taller today, but what was it like then, when we were smaller? In Taller Today Neil Ferguson pieces together fragments of his childhood in 1950s London where his father - socialist toff, inventor, jailbird, raconteur - leaves him to his own devices: to run wild in Kensington Gardens, practically a 'Lost Boy'; to discover the tragedy that led to his own begetting and then to cope with his sudden, unexpected abandonment. A vivid portrait of London in the aftermath of war, Taller Today is a poignant and evocative account of childhood, memory and the relationship between father and son.
