Description

The streets and squares of the West End of London, some of the most famous in the world, have been home to poets and pop stars, world-renowned artists and revolutionary anarchists. They have been a playground of gangsters and gamblers, secret agents and religious visionaries. The exploits of these and many other colourful characters are recounted in Ed Glinert's latest volume. Packed with atmospheric incident and detail, it's a treasure trove of stories of the people, places and events at the hub of the world's most exciting city.
