Hoo’s Who was commissioned by Douglas Marsh, a retired Kentish farmer. It was his dream to record a way of life, slowly passing into history, straight from the people who lived it. Sadly, Doug died before the book was finished and there was no money to give it the final polish it deserved. It is here though, his legacy, a little rough around the edges but doing what it set out to do.
Like dropping in for coffee with old friends from all social classes, this book gently tells the life stories of more than a dozen residents of Kent from the last century. From changes in farming, medicine and welfare; the trials of war; the eccentricities of wealth; the resourcefulness of poverty to the astonishing survival of spirit at the hands of a cruel grandmother. Put the kettle on and share a cup of coffee with Hoo’s Who.
