“Craig Taylor is the real deal: a peerless journalist and a beautiful craftsman.”—David Rakoff, New York Times bestselling author of The Fraud and Half Empty
Londoners is a wonderful book—I wanted it to be twice as long.”—Diana Athill, New York Times bestselling author of Somewhere Towards the End
In Londoners, acclaimed journalist Craig Taylor paints readers an epic portrait of today’s London that is as rich and lively as the city itself. In the style of Studs Terkel (Working, Hard Times, The Good War) and Dave Isay (Listening Is an Act of Love), Londoners offers up  the stories, the gripes, the memories, and the dreams of those in the great and vibrant British metropolis who “love it, hate it, live it, left it, and long for it,” from a West End rickshaw driver to a Soldier of the Guard at Buckingham Palace to a recovering heroin addict seeing Big Ben for the very first time. Published just in time for the 2012 London Olympic Games, Londoners is a glorious literary celebration of one of the world’s truly great cities.

    Tbh i was thinking while i was reading, i choose a wrong kind of book, cause there's so much thing that really hard for me to understand, either because of the slang, maybe it just the writing is quite complicated for me.

    Overall, Londoners is about, well, london. Its about people live their life in London. Told and written based by the series of different type of people, different experience who live there.

    I've got quite insight about how London is after read this. The culture, the people, the city, the ins and outs.

    e, to walk under dark skies, to hear the rustle of trees and experience the consistent tempo, the pace, of life. It all seemed to make sense when days had mornings and afternoons and weeks had Sunday rituals. You were supposed to follow that rhythm each day and somewhere, I began to understand that yes, this is how life is played out. The cycle moves—growth, family, death. All this is blissfully dispensed with in London. Live your life in any way, London says.

    Every Londoner must have a story, I was told, but it’s not true. Some people retract when they come in contact with this city, like salt on anemone; they become lesser versions, and pine for the country. But more often than not, just the word “London” was potent and stirred up great emotion. I saw people’s faces twist into disgust, grin unabashedly, wince or sigh, roll their eyes or reminisce. London meant new beginning, hellhole, wonderland, too big, too foul, safety
