    In Not Quite World's End, John Simpson looks at the world's troubles, the Middle East, global warming, population explosion, and takes the perhaps surprising view that it's actually not nor will be the end of the world. His vivid prose, his clear-sightedness, and the wonderful anecdotes about the many strange people and places he has come across all add up to a richly satisfying read.

Here we meet his father and his grandmother, who is still living in the small and rather depressing south London suburb that his family had built and dominated, and finally declined with.
