London has always been much more than a capital city, and celebrated writer and anthologist A.N. Wilson here gathers a collection which reflects, not merely a sense of place, but also the teeming variety of the town which prompted Samuel Johnson to declare 'When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life.' The book views the city through the eyes of writers as various as Dickens and Joe Orton, Dostoyevsky and Lenin, Boswell and Martin Amis. We see criminal London, low life and high life, beggars and politicians, Royal families, intellectuals and animals.
