Nairn's London, Paperback


This book is the winner of the Telegraph Books of the Year and Obeserver Books of the Year 2014. 'This book is a record of what has moved me between Uxbridge and Dagenham.

My hope is that it moves you, too.' Nairn's London is an idiosyncratic, poetic and intensely subjective meditation on a city and its buildings.

Including railway stations, synagogues, abandoned gasworks, dock cranes, suburban gardens, East End markets, Hawksmoor churches, a Gothic cinema and twenty-seven different pubs, it is a portrait of the soul of a place, from a writer of genius.
