Literary Irons

So Frank Lampard has signed a deal for a series of children's books. He's not the only former or current Hammer to gain literary fame. Check out these books:

Great Expectations followed by Hard Times, both by Alan Dickens
Madam Bovary by Julien Faubert
The Woman in White by James Collins
Moll Flanders by Jermain Defoe
The Portrait of a Lady by David James
The Trial by Franz Carr
Girl With Green Eyes by Joey O'Brien
Treasure Island by Alan Stephenson
Vegetarian Home Cooking by George 'Linda' McCartney

And of course Thomas Hardy wrote a memorable tribute to our greatest side entitled Under the Greenwood Tree…

Robert Green also wrote The Third Man about his time on the QPR bench and The Quiet American about John Harkes,
