Johnson's Life of London
Sorry, this item is now out of stock.
The story of London and its ingenious, original and larger-than-life residents is told here by its flamboyant ex-mayor. Both deeply knowledgeable and hugely entertaining, Boris Johnson narrates the capital's history as a kind of relay race. Beginning with the Romans, he passes the torch on down through the famous and infamous, the brilliant and the bizarre, from Hadrian to Keith Richards, with asides on diverse topics including the flush toilet, the Bow Street Runners and Routemaster buses.
