Good pots boiling 14 May 2011
By John the Reader - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This work is an edited anthology, and as a `potboiler' as they would call it in London, I neither expected to read it through or to particularly enjoy it. I did both - more, it was a wonderful source for further reading, new authors and books I had not found before. I came away from my reading very satisfied to have found this work and even determined that I should reread Boswell and Johnson on London..

There was a clue that this might be a rare exception to a normal potboiler - a book only for dipping into - in the book's blurbs was one from Dirk Bogarde, in his author and critic mode, of titivating and admiring sentences, and another from Peter Ackroyd.

I shall look out for this author's other works and I recommend this one.
