Summary
Bestselling British author Peter Ackroyd draws upon everything from ballads and folk tales to court records and newspaper accounts to create a book about London that's as diverse and enthralling as the city itself. Ackroyd portrays this amazing place as a living entity and organizes his chapters thematically, writing about such topics as the city's inhabitants, crime, theater, street life, and waste disposal practices over time. -- Description by Dawn Towery
