5.0 out of 5 stars A great intro to the personalities of Soho, 23 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Soho in the Fifties and Sixties (Kindle Edition)
This book is a fascinating introduction to some of the characters who frequented Soho after World War Two, most of them now dead. But they were certainly around during my teenage and student years when it was de rigueur for us to haunt the newly established coffee bars and jazz clubs around that square mile. Reading Jonathan Fryer's capsule biographies of Soho's most outrageous personalities, with accompanying photographs, brought back to me a pleasant sense of nostalgia, and I highly recommend the book to those who remember that period as well as to people who would love to know why Soho clung to such a rakish individuality - alas (or maybe not) long-since gone.
