Hoxne author releases second book A Gap in the Market




A Hoxne author has released his second book, detailing his adventures in southern Europe in the 1970s.

Jeremy Macdonogh’s A Gap in the Market is a memoir of his life between 1974 and 1981, and recounts his time working as a reinsurance broker for what is now the global company Marsh.

He said: “It feels pretty good to have this book out. Writing it has got it off my chest.”

Jeremy Macdonogh said it took him about a year to pen his second book. Picture by Mecha Morton.

The 70-year-old said that, even though it is a book about him, it is also a memoir about the city of London changing from a compendium of cottage industries into the corporate power-house recognised today.

This instalment begins directly after his previous book, A Gap Year or Two, and, though this time it only took him just over a year to pen, he is still amazed at how his past manages to come flooding back.

He said: “It really is quite strange. If you asked me 10 years ago about my life in the 70s, I probably would not be able to remember anything, but, as soon as I start to write it down, it just brings it all back.”
