This review is from: Spitalfields Life: In the Midst of Life I Woke to Find Myself Living in an Old House Beside Brick Lane in the East End of London (Hardcover)
I've been a fan of the Gentle Author's blog for a while now, so was delighted to see how beautifully it translates to book form. Spitalfields Life is a love letter to many things: to pubs heavy with the memories of smoke and violence; to the transformative power of graffiti; to fresh beigels at any hour of a freezing night; to the unexpected pleasures of urban flora and fauna; to sad-eyed guardians of vanishing arts and to bright-eyed entrepreneurs brimming with innovations. It teems with life and vitality, and the book itself is an absolute work of art that reflects the area's own vibrant traditions. A book to treasure, and a book to give to friends, family and strangers alike.
