5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Book, 25 Jun. 2012
This review is from: Diamond Street: The Hidden World of Hatton Garden (Hardcover)
After reading such glowing reviews of Rachel Lichtenstein's latest book Diamond Street in the Guardian, Sunday Times and The Telegraph I bought the book with great anticipation and can happily say I have not been disappointed. I really can't think of another book quite like it. The author cleverly manages to interweave oral history interviews with fascinating characters who have worked in London's best known jewellery quarter with a series of walks, conversations and deep archival research journeys to construct a really unique study of a little known quarter of the city. As a recent reviewer in The Independent pointed out, 'among her [Lichtenstein's] many talents is her ability to make us look with a fresh eye at familiar urban spaces.' This book is a must read for anyone interested in the story of London.
