when the portrait of arch-tyrant and murderer Stalin
looked down benevolently over his cot.'

Roy Kerridge was born in 1941. He now lives in London, but regards Brighton as his home town. After writing a series of Brighton articles for “The New Statesman” in 1960 and ‘61, he drifted into obscurity. In 1979 he was rediscovered by author Christopher Booker, who brought his work to the attention of Alexander Chancellor, then editor of “The Spectator”. For the next ten years, Kerridge wrote regularly for that magazine, and became known to features editors up and down Fleet Street.

When “Fleet Street” with its easy-going ways became a thing of the past, Roy Kerridge found a niche with magazines such as “The London Miscellany”, “The Chelsea Resident” and “The Traditionalist”. It was the editor of the latter periodical who introduced him to CustomBooks. The rest is history - literally so, since Roy Kerridge then published the Frankel Family Trilogy, which began with “Triumphs of Communism”, set in nineteenth century Denmark and Poland. “Stalin’s Schoolboy” continued the saga, which ends here with “Raised on Skiffle”.
