On Brick Lane, Paperback

On Brick Lane Paperback



Brick Lane today is a place of extremes - a street that's constantly reinventing itself.

Blending history and reportage with personal testimony and urban myths, and interspersing these with maps and photography, "On Brick Lane" is a one-of-a-kind chronicle of one of London's most remarkable streets.

Bringing to life the memories and realities of Brick Lane's many communities, Rachel Lichtenstein harnesses the voices of the famous, the infamous and the obscure, merging memoir, reportage, poetry, photography and local history.

The result is as vibrant and fascinating as the neighbourhood it so movingly celebrates.
