'The days and nights of London now - as told to by those who love it, hate it, live it, left it and long for it.’
What kind of person ends up in London? Taylor seeks the answers in this brilliant and diverse collection of interviews with people who have conflicting attitudes towards the city. From bankers to tube drivers there are those that feel the city has saved them - the heroin addict who claims that staring up at Big Ben helped him go clean – those that feel stuck, and those for whom the anonymity feels isolating. A bestseller at Daunts Books, this social history will delight and intrigue.
