AN UNRELIABLE GUIDE TO LONDON brings together twenty-six stories about the lesser known parts of a world renowned city. Stories that stretch the reader's definition of the truth. Stories that have you questioning whether reality, and fiction simultaneously. Stories that will tell you there are wind nymphs in North Clapham tube station, a horse sized swan at Brentford Ait, Sleeping Clinics in NW3 and celebrations for St Margaret's Day of the Dead. Taking its cue from travel guides, London histories and books like Tired of London, Tired of Life, AN UNRELIABLE GUIDE TO LONDON will shake up the canon of London writing with a tongue firmly routed in its cheek.UNRELIABLE GUIDE TO LONDON is the perfect summer read for city dwellers up and down the country. With a list of contributors reflecting the multilayered, complex social structures of the city, it is the perfect guide to London showing you everything that you never knew existed.Features stories from M John Harrison, Yvvette Edwards, Chloe Aridjis, Nikesh Shukla, Courttia Newland, Juliet JaquesWill Wiles, Irenosen Okojie, Paul Ewen, Noo Saro Wiwa, Salena Godden and many more
