The streets and squares of the West End of London, some of the most famous in the world, have been home to poets and pop stars, world-renowned artists and revolutionary anarchists. They have been a playground of gangsters and gamblers, secret agents and religious visionaries. The exploits of these and many other colourful characters are recounted in Ed Glinert's latest volume. Packed with atmospheric incident and detail, it's a treasure trove of stories of the people, places and events at the hub of the world's most exciting city.

Review:

'the most pleasurable guide to the West End since the A-Z' Melanie McGrath, Seven

good, gossipy, well-informed ... and Glinert's enthusiasm for the alleys and alleycats ... is infectious (Tribune)

Everyone has their own experiences of the West End and Chronicles rounds up the best of them (The Independent on Sunday)
