Reseña del editor:

Between Oxford Street and Euston Road, bordered by Portland Place, Gower Street and Tottenham Court Road, lies a mysteriously evocative area, close to London's heart, known as Fitzrovia. For over 400 years this is where the bohemian life of London has flourished. Fitzrovia is a strange mix with an extraordinary history, one that also holds up a mirror to the rest of the city. For the avant garde, for artists and artisan, Fitzrovia has been a home, the creative hub, full of studios, craftshops and trysting places. Of sex, murder and mayhem, Fitzrovia has had more than its fair share. Alongside grandeur and elegance, exiles and emigres occupied shabby tenements and introduced new styles of cafe and restaurant. Revolutionaries and radicals gathered here. Spivs and spies, princes and prostitutes all jostled in its streets. Medical professionals mingled in institutions set up by free-thinkers, with intellectuals and inventors. Radio and television programmes from Fitzrovia, broadcast to the world, shaped the culture of an empire and a nation. Independent publishing clusters in Fitzrovia, near the legendary pubs where writers and poets met and drank in the 1940s and 50s. From bawdy houses to boxing rings, from the haunts for homosexuals to the voices of the music hall, Fitzrovia has celebrated the outrageous and the unconventional, as well as cherishing its community. Its music venues embrace everything from the first classical proms to night clubs, jazz cellars, and the birth of British pop. To know Fitzrovia is to discover what made London, and how.
