The London Nobody Knows, Hardback Book

The London Nobody Knows Hardback

Hardback

Description

Geoffrey Fletcher's London was not the big landmarks, but rather 'the tawdry, extravagant and eccentric'.

He wrote about parts of the city no-one ever had before.

This could be an art nouveau pub, a Victorian music hall, a Hawksmoor church or even a public toilet in Holborn in which the attendant kept goldfish in the cisterns.

He was drawn to the corners of the city where 'the kids swarm like ants and there are dogs everywhere'.

This classic book was originally published in 1962 and has been in and out of print ever since.

In 1967 it was turned into an acclaimed documentary film starring James Mason.

Following a series of sold out screenings at the Barbican and the ICA, the film was re-released on DVD in 2008.

This book is a must-have for anyone with an interest in London, and will surprise even those who think they know it well.
