ATPIELI 6: Melrose Avenue NW2 Shared with C, a friend of a friend of a friend, and she was a great landlady, because not only did she let me put up all the pictures and junk I’d brought back from Asia, she basically taught me how to cook.

There’s a strange thing about living on Melrose Avenue: Dennis Nilson had two London addresses – one in Muswell Hill and one at (195, I think) Melrose Avenue. So whenever I told someone my address, they said “sounds strangely familiar… do I know someone who lives there?” And the bloke across the road had an inordinate amount of visitors who used to leave clutching a brown paper bag. My brother suggested he might be a (freelance, presumably) greengrocer, but I thought different.
