About this Item

Fine cloth copy in a near-fine, very slightly edge-nicked and dust-dulled dw, now mylar-sleeved. Remains particularly and surprisingly well-preserved overall; tight, bright, clean and strong.; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 150 pages; Physical description: 150p. ; 23cm. Subjects: London (England) - Biography - Description and travel - Social life and customs. Summary: This book is the account by a number of writers from different backgrounds and generations of their own particular Londons. Some came from as far afield as Trinidad, like Shiva Naipul, and Austria, like Peter Porter, some, like Roy Fuller and John mellors, from provinces. Others, like Michael Feld, Paul Bailey and Gavin Ewart, are London bord and bred. Some moved from district to district, some stayed put. But for the periods they write about they were all, in their different ways, Londoners. The result is a series of urban portraits that brings London to life, not as the tourist experiences it but as it is for those who set up shop there. The visitor, for this reason, will learn more about London from this book that from most books especially designed for him. The Londoner will learn something about his environment. 1 Kg.
