DWB:Gone,but not Forgotten,
This review is from: Dirty White Boy: Tales of Soho (Paperback)
There are many wonderful things about this book,which is very hard to put down once you start reading it!
For anyone who is familiar with the "wildlife" around Old Compton Street,it gives a rush of nostalgia,a sense of empathy for the characters that Clayton Littlewood describes(and indeed for Clayton himself) and triggers all sorts of recognition,emotions and feelings.
Those who are NOT familiar with the area will be thrilled,amazed,drawn in and caught like butterflies on sellotape as the cinematic view from Clayton's window at Dirty White Boy unfolds into streams of fascinating drama,comedy,tragedy and farce.
A very witty and articulate style of writing ensures that this book will hang in your brain-space for a long time to come.I laughed out loud many times when I read the book,but also felt the other side of life creep in and move me deeply.
A sublime glimpse into a fascinating world.
