Nairn's London, Paperback

Nairn's London Paperback

Part of the Penguin Modern Classics series



This book is the winner of the Telegraph Books of the Year and Obeserver Books of the Year 2014. 'This book is a record of what has moved me between Uxbridge and Dagenham.

My hope is that it moves you, too.' Nairn's London is an idiosyncratic, poetic and intensely subjective meditation on a city and its buildings.

Including railway stations, synagogues, abandoned gasworks, dock cranes, suburban gardens, East End markets, Hawksmoor churches, a Gothic cinema and twenty-seven different pubs, it is a portrait of the soul of a place, from a writer of genius.
