Reviews

"Remarkable. . . . Essential. . . . Enlightening. . . . Londoners offers an impression of the city's people, a way to understand their motives and fears and the simmering rush. It captures the combination of quiet desperation and boundless optimism required to live [there]."--San Francisco Chronicle
"An epic portrait in eighty voices that shows the city to be just [as] Dickensian as it has ever been."--David Nicholls, bestselling author of One Day
"Londoners is a wonderful book--I wanted it to be twice as long."--Diana Athill, bestselling author of Somewhere Towards the End
"Samuel Johnson said, 'When you are tired of London, you're tired of life.' Craig Taylor is tired of neither London nor life, and this book is a gorgeous, utterly irresistible--even addictive--ode to both."--David Shields, bestselling author of The Thing About Life Is That One Day You'll Be Dead and Reality Hunger
"Ambitious [and] creative. . . . A book to deepen your relationship with London and make you fall in - or out - of love with it all over again. . . . I can't tell you how much I enjoyed it."--Lucy Worsley, author of If Walls Could Talk
"Craig Taylor is the real deal: a peerless journalist and a beautiful craftsman. He'd be a household name already if he wasn't so modest. He'll be one anyway in due course."--David Rakoff, bestselling author of Fraud and Half Empty
"Fans of Studs Terkel's insightful oral histories will be delighted to discover a successor in Taylor. . . . His book brings London to life as it is--ever changing, ever eternal, ever unforgettable. A delight!"--Library Journal (starred review)
