Location And The Writer, part 23

Childhood shoes

In “Location and the Writer”, Caroline Sanderson compares memory with reality, Paul Dodgson returns to a place he once escaped, and Clare Chambers enjoys the south-east London suburbs. Caroline Sanderson revisits her childhood home for the first time in five decades, to compare memory with reality. Paul Dodgson takes us to Hythe on the south coast of Kent, drawn back to a place he was once desperate to escape. Clare Chambers explains why the apparently prosaic location of the south-east London suburbs has been such a source of inspiration in her work.
