I've Lived in East London for 86 1/2 years is the story of Joseph Markovitch, a vulnerable old man with a great sense of humour who has lived in Hoxton for his entire life. He left only once, to go to the seaside with his mother. Joe loves Nicolas Cage films, has five sugars in his tea, and he has quite bad catarrh. He is an original 'Eastender'. Dealing with quintessential subject matter such as childhood, art, work, relationships and religion in a playful but touching way, Joseph unknowingly provides a thought-provoking commentary on the state of the modern world.

London A Short History

London  A Short History

From Chaucer to Churchill, from Pepys to Dickens - the great figures from London's past all make their appearance in A. N. Wilson's affectionate and passionate account of one of the world's greatest cities. Dramatic events are here too - from the Great Fire to the Blitz, from the Peasants' Revolt to Mosley's fascist rallies. But he also looks at the physical transformations of the city: the elegant squares and pleasure gardens of the 18th century; the prodigious expansion of the 19th century and the Railway Age. He moves through the First World War and the 'Big Bang' of the 1980s to celebrate the cosmopolitan nature of modern London while deploring the follies of recent urban planning.

London has been one of the world's great cities for over 2,000 years and has produced countless scholars, artists, rogues and wits, each of whom left their mark on the metropolis by their words or deeds. The Wit and Wisdom of London brings together their best and most memorable quotations, a treasury of the cleverest, the wittiest, and the bawdiest sayings of the city's greatest residents. From the Romans to Amy Winehouse, via Doctor Johnson and Dickens, and from the aristocrats of Westminster to the paupers of the East End, The Wit and Wisdom of London captures the essence of London, in the words of its people. 'It is not the walls that make the city, but the people who live within them. The walls of London may be battered, but the spirit of the Londoner stands resolute and undismayed.' George VI 'Nothing is certain in London but expense.' William Shenstone 'The man who can dominate a London dinner table can dominate the world.' Oscar Wilde
