9780711235649: A London Year: 365 Days of City Life in Diaries, Journals and Letters

A London Year is an anthology of short diary entries, one or more for each day of the year, which, taken together, provides an impressionistic portrait of life in the city from Tudor times to the twenty-first century.

There are more than two hundred featured writers, with a short biography for each. The most famous diarist of all - Samuel Pepys - is there, as well as some of today's finest diarists like Alan Bennett and Chris Mullin. There are coronations and executions, election riots and zeppelin raids, duels, dust-ups and drunken sprees, among everyday moments like Brian Eno cycling in Kilburn or George Eliot walking on Wimbledon Common.

Vividly evoking moments in the lives of Londoners in the past, providing snapshots of the city's inhabitants at work, at play, in pursuit of money, sex, entertainment, pleasure and power, A London Year is the perfect book for all who live in or love this eternal, ever-changing city.

Both of them live in London.

Review:

‘The perfect book for all who live in or love this eternal, ever-changing city.’



'The erudite selection by editors Travis Elborough and Nick Rennison yields gem after gem.'

`One of the wonderful things about this book is the fact that the revelations themselves are contributed by some of the world's most famous writers. A transcendent read which creates a rich tapestry of our beloved capital through the ages.'

`A near-priceless collection of insights.'

`The perfect book for all who live in or love this eternal, ever-changing city.'

`It takes us through those 365 days through the words of Londoners themselves, skitting and dashing around from the past and the present. And what a cast list it has. In the first few pages, we meet Samuel Pepys (Mr W. Pen has left his sword on the coach to Westminster), Alan Bennett (Reg from Inverness Street Market has died, and we're standing by a trestle-table outside the Good Mixer), and Brian Eno (he's on a bus on the Great Western Road - "a mobile version of the village well"). The dipping potential within it is delicious. The modern diary entries are the nicest touch, though, I think. Head-deep in the past, you feel a scorch of white heat suddenly encountering Michael Palin, or Anthony Sher, or Dickon Edwards of '90s Romo band Orlando, and indie band Fosca. Each season edges along with the mention of each moment and memory.'

`Live everyday life, entries can be both monotonous and vivid, but A London Year will have something to teach residents and visitors alike.'

`It is overflowing with pithy, scurrilous, poetic and witty words.'

`If you're planning an outing to the capital, it's the perfect appetiser - packed with inspiring detail and observations.'



‘If you're planning an outing to the capital, it's the perfect appetiser - packed with inspiring detail and observations.’



‘Live everyday life, entries can be both monotonous and vivid, but A London Year will have something to teach residents and visitors alike.’
