9780141012131: The London Compendium: A street-by-street exploration of the hidden metropolis

The streets of London resonate with secret stories, from East End lore to Cold War espionage, from tales of riots, rakes, brothers, anarchy and grisly murders, to Rolling Stones gigs, gangland drinking dens, Orwell's Fitzrovia and Lenin's haunts. Ed Glinert has walked the city from Limehouse to Lambeth, Whitehall to Whitechapel, unravelling its mysteries along the way. This is London as you have never seen it before.

Review:

"'One of those books, destined to be read until they fall apart, that map the unmappable and make it live' Ian Sinclair."

About the Author:

Ed Glinert was born in Dalston. He is the author of The Literary Guide to London and The London Compendium and leads a variety of walking tours around London. His fascination with people and place, coupled with his forensic gift for digging out obscure stories is perfectly suited to this uniquely intriguing subject.
