Review

'Groes has written a work of impressive insight and erudition.' - PD Smith, The Guardian

'Anyone who has read Moorcock, Duffy, Ackroyd or Ballard and wondered how it all fits together will be fascinated and enlightened.'- Euan Ferguson, Time Out London

'The Making of London is fascinating. Refreshingly free of the dryness that mars a lot of critical writing, and it introduced me to a lot of stuff I previously knew nowt about.' - Niall Griffiths

'I am most impressed. The corpus is an interesting and challenging one, and the photography is a brilliant addition.'- Richard Todd, Leiden University

'Groes has produced an impressive book, wide-ranging in its scope, subtle in its analysis and adept at keeping numerous intellectual balls in the air. It will, I have little doubt, become a standard text for students and academics working on 'Contemporary' London literature, and English literature more generally.' - Alex Murray, University of Exeter, UK
 
'Sebastian Groes' groundbreaking book [is] a highly detailed and meticulous study of [...] the major shifts and developments in London novels since the early 1980s. The Making of London covers a wide scope in terms of authors, narration and critical praxis, and is hence an asset for English literature students and academics alike.' - Sebnem Toplu, Interactions

Book Description
