Mother London, Paperback / softback Book

Mother London Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Shortlisted for the Whitbread prize, MOTHER LONDON is a dazzling journey through the heart of a city that the author loved.

Spanning generations of characters across a variety of boroughs from the Blitz to the mid-eighties, this is a book about the real London that tourists will never find, a London which is being erased by the spread of high-rise flats and shining skyscrapers. Following a group of released mental patients across the years and streets of London, Moorcock creates a vivid impressionistic portrait of the city, from its downtrodden pubs to its green parks.

All of the lead characters hear voices - but are they the murmurings of their damaged minds, or the true voice of the city?
