Praise

“A TOUR DE FORCE . . . London tracks the history of the English capital from the days of the Celts until the present time. . . . Breathtaking.”—The Orlando Sentinel

“Remarkable . . . The invasion by Julius Caesar’s legions in 54 B.C. . . . The rise of chivalry and the Crusades . . . The building of the Globe theatre . . . and the coming of the Industrial Revolution. . . . What a delightful way to get the feel of London and of English history. . . . We witness first-hand the lust of Henry VIII. We overhear Geoffrey Chaucer deciding to write The Canterbury Tales. . . . Each episode is a punchy tale made up of bite-size chunks ending in tiny cliffhangers.”—The New York Times

“Hold-your-breath suspense, buccaneering adventure, and passionate tales of love and war.”The Times (London)

“Fascinating . . . A sprawling epic.”San Francisco Chronicle

Author Essay

I’ve read a lot of books and plays for which London is the backdrop, and I’ve visited and explored the big monuments as well as the many back streets and byways of this ancient city – but I never really thought of city as an entity unto itself.  In LONDON, the  author of the bestselling SARUM, tells the life and history of this epic city through the lives and forturnes of generations of six London families.  It’s compelling reading: I  had planned to make this book last a good six weeks but found I couldn’t put it down (to the point of complaining about having to stop to eat dinner).
