The Midnight Bell, a pub on the Euston Road, is the pulse of this brilliant and compassionate trilogy.
It is here where the barman, Bob, falls in love with Jenny, a West End prostitute who comes in off the streets for a gin and pep.
Around his obsessions, and Ella the barmaid's secret love for him, swirls the sleazy life of London in the 1930s.
This is a world where people emerge from cheap lodgings in Pimlico to pour out their passions, hopes and despair in pubs and bars - a world of twenty thousand streets full of cruelty and kindness, comedy and pathos, wasted dreams and lost desires.
