A multidimensional literary jigsaw' Londonist 'A series of short, sharp, city-based vignettes - some personal, some political and some pictorial ... each inimitable author finds that our city is complicated but ultimately connected, full of wit, and just the right amount of grit' Fabric Magazine 'A collection of beautiful books' Grazia [Praise for John O'Farrell]: 'Comic genius' Mirror 'A consistently humorous writer' Mail on Sunday John O'Farrell is the bestselling author of four novels, including The Man Who Forgot His Wife.
