Description
Bringing together three of Colin MacInnes' finest works, this exciting omnibus explores a very different side of London life in the 1950s than is usually portrayed. His characters are colourful and real, painting vivid pictures of areas such as Brixton and Notting Hill at this time. The stories of friendship, love and growing up are set against a background of jazz and good times, as London's staid reputation progresses to that of a thriving multiracial capital. A man ahead of his time, MacInnes displayed the realities of 1950s London: an emerging teen culture, black immigration and the glamorisation of crime and criminals with remarkable insight and sympathy.
Reviews
'MacInnes is a lyrical celebrator of London, and above all, a writer with a purpose' -- The Observer
