Book Details

Format: EPUB

Protection: DRM

Language: English

Many of the Londoners in this novel are outcasts – some are criminals in society’s eyes. Most are descended from adventurers and immigrants. The worlds they inhabit – the bedsit; the cruisers’ pub – lie cheek by jowl with the worlds of the affluent and successful – the smart restaurant, the House of Commons Committee room.

Al, the narrator, is a Londoner born and bred, a writer living in a small room in West London. Most of the other residents in the cavernous Victorian house – and the friends and acquaintances Al meets in tow local pubs, the bohemian and relaxed crowd at the Nevern and the slightly more ambiguous and dangerous crowd at the Knacker’s – are Londoners by adoption, some temporary exiles, some permanent.
