My Usual Table

Charles Lander

Customers with their usual table at a restaurant have more than their fair share of problems. The manager Leo can help. These interconnecting stories, clever and intriguing, follow the fortunes of the customers and how they and their families react to the issues they face.
A father who dies leaving a dysfunctional family with a problem they alone can solve - will they find the right solution?
An overzealous lifestyle guru and his long-suffering wife - how can she cope with him?
A husband with financial problems wanting to sell a valuable work of art without his family knowing - can he find a way to do it?
These and other stories are told with warmth and humour, all from the author's experience as a lawyer advising families on their personal dilemmas. The stories often reveal what happens if the past is allowed to dictate to the present.

Throughout his career as a solicitor spanning more than four decades Charles Lander advised families on their problems - wills, trusts, tax and disputes - which he always believed would be fertile ground for stories derived from his experience. Once Charles retired, he decided to write about them and the result is this collection of stories, loosely based on fact.
Charles lives with his wife in south-west London, where they have lived for many years. They have two children and four grandchildren.
