Paragraph 1:

One of the most exciting developments in recent years has been(1) the rediscovery of Anglo-Jewish writing from the 1950s. While much attention has been given(2) to major revivals of Harold Pinter and Arnold Wesker over the past decade, from the National Theatre’s staging of Wesker’s The Kitchen and “Pinter at the Pinter”, what has been(3) largely overlooked(4) is the important work done by small publishers to champion postwar Anglo- Jewish novelists who have fallen(5) into neglect.

Paragraph 2:

These are(6)hardly household names today, yet Baron’s war novel, From the City, From the Plough  sold(7) half a million copies when it was(8) first published, Kersh  once had(9) four novels in the top ten bestseller list, and Camberton’s first novel won(10) the Somerset Maugham award. What these authors really have(11) in common, though, is(12) the obstacles they faced(13) to find a place in the cultural mainstream.

Paragraph 3:

In Roland Camberton’s second novel, Rain on the Pavements, the central character David comes(14) across a novel by his Uncle Jake, the black sheep of the family. It is called(15) Failure. This “unsuccessful and unread novel” sums(16) up the sad, lonely life of Uncle Jake. It also sums(17) up the career of Camberton. Rain on the Pavements was(18) his second and final novel. Following this, he vanished(19) off the literary map. His centenary this month is(20) a good opportunity to reassess this unfairly neglected writer.

Paragraph 4:

Camberton was born(21) in Manchester but was brought(22) up in London and educated(23) at Hackney Downs School. Born Henry Cohen, he anglicized(24) his name when he started(25) writing. Both of his novels were republished(26) by New London Editions in 2010, with their beautiful original covers by John Minton. The novels are(27) polar opposites: one concerns(28) the seedy world of literary Fitzrovia, the other is(29) about Jewish working-class life in Hackney in the 1930s.
