about

Wolfe Brown is a successful baker and property developer in London's East End. He has a beautiful wife and family of young children he dotes on, and the fortunes of the family's business empire are prospering and growing daily. In the years before the First World War, life is as sweet for Wolfe, his brother Asher and their wives Eva and Sarah, as the cakes that have proved to be a recipe for their success - and it just keeps on getting sweeter.But for Wolfe and Asher, life has not always been this wonderful. Born Chayim Zeeve Braun and Asher Braun, the two Jewish brothers changed their surnames after emigrating from Poland to escape the pogroms. And now they face new dangers from their bitter past, when they fought the Cossacks who killed their own family back in Poland. In the shadowy world of Irish, French and Russian criminal gangs in the back streets of London, Wolfe Brown - a man of honour, a boxer and a natural fighter - will have to fight, in the most literal sense, for his life to protect himself and his family.About the authorDavid Brown is an ex London cabbie and Blue Badge tour guide. He had to retire due to having both legs amputated after contracting Beurges Disease. Following the amputation of his left leg in 1992,he decided to begin writing. Over the next ten years, in and out of hospital, writing kept him sane. In 2003 he and his wife Marlene moved from London to Gorleston to downsize, but six months after moving, David lost his right leg after an operation and catching MRSA. Ten years later, he is still writing. East End Boys is based on David's grandparents' journey to England, following the pogroms and restrictions because of the Pale of Settlement and the experiences they and other emigrants went through. The novel is the first in a trilogy that will form a Jewish family saga spanning the twentieth century.
