Product description

Review

‘Leave the Oyster card at home and set out in your walking shoes with Rogers as a companion – and be prepared to see London in a whole new way.’ Time Out

‘Rich with surprises …Rogers conjured up magical little worlds that we would otherwise pass by.’ Metro

‘The author’s love of exploration is infectious. Anyone who reads This Other London will find themselves with an unexpected itch to visit the Welsh Harp Reservoir or Hounslow Heath … [John Rogers is] the Brian Cox of topology, inspiring wonder and curiosity.’ Londonist

‘John is endowed with a gentle, humorous wisdom, which is evident throughout these pages… You, like me, could have no better guide than the man who has written this book.’ Russell Brand

About the Author

When he first came to London, John Rogers moved into a terraced house in Forest Gate with the ambition of living like The Young Ones. He made sense of his new environment by walking everywhere he could, making notes in a Lion Brand notebook.

He first put pen to paper writing plays, sketches, and stand-up which he performed in London fringe venues. He has worked on numerous projects with comedian Russell Brand and directed documentaries including The London Perambulator and Make Your Own Damn Art: the World of Bob and Roberta Smith. John also produced and co-presented Ventures and Adventures in Topography on Resonance 104.4fm with Nick Papadimitriou.

Most recently, he built a shed at the bottom of his garden that he painted red and green, which he is unusually proud of.
