Roland Camberton’s second novel is a coming of age portrayal of “down Hackney”, home of David Hirsch, who steadily leaves behind his Jewish upbringing in adolescence to explore the wider world of London. Typically there is wide array of humorous characters in his portrayal of Hackney and the more cosmopolitan world Hirsch is drawn towards.

Roland Camberton (Henry Cohen) was born in Manchester in 1921 and was educated in Hackney. After RAF service he worked in various jobs. He won the Somerset Maugham Prize in 1951. After Rain on the Pavements he vanished almost without trace, publishing nothing more. His daughter, who he never met, lives in London.
