This author has written a very interesting history of the period that the Windmill Theatre operated. I found it fascinating and informative. He covered subjects about the characters involved in the life at the Windmill, gangsters et al. His style makes for an easy read.

I recommend this book and the Author.

PS: I have just taken delivery of his later book Life in the 1940's London and look forward to reading this soon.

This is very nearly a great book. It is written with a huge amount of affection for its subject, a place I have known intimately for my entire life. The frustrating thing is that stories that really deserve at least A chapter devoted to them are sometimes dealt with in a paragraph or so. Admittedly, the scope of this book is ambitious , covering a period of thirty or more years, but this does leave the reader feeling that he is reading an essay,rather than a book. The prose style is somewhat pedestrian, but the authors genuine affection for this most fascinating part of London and its people shines through.
This book belongs to a sort of sub-genre of London books, written not by professional authors, but by enthusiastic amateurs, and is none the worse for that. Think of it as a witness statement, or a true memoir and you will not be disappointed. The Soho described here is the one that was just about to vanish when I first knew the area, but that has now been sanitized and controlled out of existence. London is a poorer place without it.
The later years described here are dealt with without much affection or detail, and one rather gets,the feeling that the author would have been happier to conclude his tale in the very early sixties. It is however, worth reading if ,like me, this city has become an obsession.
