Mark Sanderson at large in a world of books

Roddy Doyle, Helen Fielding, Caryl Phillips and Benjamin Zephaniah were 
all born in 1958. It was a spectacular year for novels, including I Like 
it Here by Kingsley Amis, The Darling Buds of May by H. E. Bates, The 
Enemy in the Blanket by Anthony Burgess, *Balthazar by Lawrence 
Durrell*, Dr No by Ian Fleming, Our Man in Havana by Graham Greene, The 
Bell by Iris Murdoch and Saturday Night and Sunday Morning by Alan Sillitoe.

Samuel Beckett's Endgame was first performed in English in New York on 
28 January and in London on 28 October. Eric Newby published A Short 
Walk in the Hindu Kush. The first children were thrilled by Tom's 
Midnight Garden by Philippa Pearce.
