11 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the brief golden years of the Edwardian era, Rosie McCosh and her three sisters are growing up in an idyllic household in the countryside south of London. With their neighbors, the two Pitt brothers and the three Pendennis boys, they are "The Pals." But these days of childhood camaraderie and adventure are brought to an abrupt end by the outbreak of World War I, in which some will lose their lives, some their loved ones, some their faith, and all of them their innocence.

Sunday morning at the centre of the world : a play for voices by Louis De Bernières( Book )

5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Taking his inspiration from Dylan Thomas' Under Milk Wood, de Bernières chose to celebrate his ten years in the south London suburb, living above a small shop that had been by turns an outlet for oversized naughty clothes for transvestites, a West Indian hairdresser and a junk shop, by writing of the people that he had known and come to love in his time there. Brilliantly capturing the myriad voices of modern Britain with their different rhythms of speech and accents, their humour and their tragedy, jokes and gossip, this tour de force takes us to the heart of a community and its spirit - the lives of its people. This work was first broadcast on BBC radio in 1998 and was performed at the Dylan Thomas Centre, Swansea in 1999 and 2000
