9780141018515: On Brick Lane

Brick Lane today is a place of extremes – a street that's constantly reinventing itself. Blending history and reportage with personal testimony and urban myths, and interspersing these with maps and photography, On Brick Lane is a one-of-a-kind chronicle of one of London's most remarkable streets. Bringing to life the memories and realities of Brick Lane's many communities, Rachel Lichtenstein harnesses the voices of the famous, the infamous and the obscure, merging memoir, reportage, poetry, photography and local history. The result is as vibrant and fascinating as the neighbourhood it so movingly celebrates.

A collage of beady-eyed topographical study, family history and oral testimony... an intriguing, vivid memorial Seven/ Telegraph ...a comprehensive, deeply researched portrait of the street... affectionate, absorbing New Statesman ...a comprehensive, deeply researched portrait of the street... affectionate, absorbing New Statesman
