Reviewing An Episode of Sparrows


The lovely online Albion Magazine has just published my review of Rumer Godden’s 1955 novel An Episode of Sparrows, about children planting a garden in the rubble of bombed London. The book was also made into a film called Innocent Sinners, starring talented child actress June Archer, which you can find on YouTube. Both the book and the movie have some uncomfortable and sad moments, but the overall message is one of irrepressible life. You can read the full review here.
