Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Wilson expresses a sense of history leaving traces that can be teased out by thoughtful observation, alongside his love for and exasperation with a city that insists on remaking itself…He evokes a particular energy as the more essential quality of the city and forgives London for its faults. Historically and literary minded visitors will find much in this book to guide them and deepen their understanding.” Publishers Weekly
“This slim, enjoyable volume by novelist/biographer will make good airline reading for the college student en route to a London vacation.” Library Journal
