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 believe that with the right ingredients you could build an "authentic" Crouch End in the Nevada desert, if you so fancied, but you must have the following: you must have mothers taking up all pavement space with those chariot-sized prams that force you to hug storefronts in order to get past. (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.
