Next book reading will be on the novels of Alexander Baron with Susie Thomas. The novelist Alexander Baron (1917-1999) was born into a working class Jewish home in Hackney, joined the Communist Party as a young man, saw the thick of battle in Sicily and Normandy, and became one of the most admired writers of post-war Britain. His first novel, From the City, From the Plough, was acclaimed as the definitive novel of the Second World War, the first of a trilogy including There’s No Home and The Human Kind.
