The ground-breaking and bestselling group portrait of London today: a book as rich, dynamic, lively, and diverse as the city itself.

'Epic' David Nicholls 'Electrifying' The Times 'This is a book to deepen your relationship with London and make you fall in - or out - of love with it all over again... I can't tell you how much I enjoyed it' Evening Standard Here are the voices of London - rich and poor, native and immigrant, women and men - witnessed by acclaimed journalist, playwright and writer Craig Taylor, who spent five years exploring the city and listening to its residents. From the woman whose voice announces the stations on the London Underground to the man who plants the trees along Oxford Street; from a Pakistani currency trader to a Guardsman at Buckingham Palace - together, these voices and many more, paint a vivid, epic and wholly fresh portrait of twenty-first century London.

'[A] splendid oral history of the city... A remarkable volume' Guardian 'A substantial account, not just of our imaginary riverside capital, but, more vividly, of himself: as inquirer, investigator, part of a long and valuable lineage' Iain Sinclair, Observer 'Memorable, funny and occasionally melancholy... A rich, satisfying tapestry of metropolitan life' Sunday Times
