"Authors include the masterly John Lanchester, the children of Kids Company, comic John O'Farrell and social geographer Danny Dorling. Ranging from the polemical to the fantastical, the personal to the societal, they offer something for every taste. All experience the city as a cultural phenomenon and notice its nature and its people. Read individually they're delightful small reads, pulled together they offer a particular portrait of a global city." "Evening Standard""
"Exquisitely diverse." "Times""
"Eclectic and broad-minded. . . beautifully designed." "Observer""
The contrasts and transitions between books are as stirring as the books themselves. . . A multidimensional literary jigsaw." "Londonist"
"A collection of beautiful books." "Grazia""
"A series of short, sharp, city-based vignettes some personal, some political and some pictorial. . . each inimitable author finds that our city is complicated but ultimately connected, full of wit, and just the right amount of grit." "Fabric "Magazine" ""
