London Lies

An anthology of stories edited by

A celebration in short stories of what makes London the city it is: the landmarks are there but it is the people who make the city, and the stories, work.

From the mean streets of Hackney to sleepy South London suburbs, from boho Bloomsbury to City wine bars, London Lies is a tour of the capital as you've never seen it before. What happens when a girl on her way to work is propositioned by a frog? When a man breaks into London Zoo to fight a hippo? When nuclear bombs fall on a future London, when the rats rise up to rule us or - most terrifying of all - when Scrabble goes bad? Moving form 1930s Camden to a Royal Wedding "riot", via football fights, office steeplechases and awkward dates in art galleries, London Lies is a bizarre, funny, moving and sometimes unnerving glimpse into the secret life of the city we all love and know - or do we?

Featuring short stories from 19 authors who have been showcased at London's Liars' League the monthly live literature event.
