7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By charris on 27 Nov 2006
Format: Paperback
A whirlwind tour through London's literary history from Dickens to the present day. Stops en route include Robert Louis Stevenson, Arthur Conan Doyle, Arthur Machen and JG Ballard. Besides these well-known authors there are a number of less familiar names: Gerald Kersh and Sam Selvon, Alexander Baron and Derek Raymond. Coverley includes the historical context of these novels alongside a short plot summary, key quotes and an evaluation. Essential reading for all those who love the city and the books it has inspired.
