Deborah Ross: How to build your own Crouch End

While London burns I feel I ought to remind you these may be exciting times for Crouch End; the setting for SJ Watson's bestselling thriller, Before I Go To Sleep, which has been bought by Ridley Scott and is soon to be a major Hollywood movie. The only question over the project seems to be: will it stay in N8, or will the action move to America? But does it matter? Maybe not.

(I was forced to hug David Clulow the other day and while he knows a great deal about overpriced sunglasses, he gives very little back in terms of warmth). You must have a health-food shop which sells both organic and non-organic mung beans (always a hard choice) and staff that look peculiarly sickly.
