New releases: Books about London

20130929-140835.jpg

Last week I received two new books in the post; London Villages: Explore the City’s Best Local Neighbourhoods by Zena Alkayat and A London Year: 365 Days of City Life in Diaries, Journals & Letters.

London Villages is a beautifully designed book that explores ‘villages’ like Exmouth Market, East Dulwich and Columbia Road whilst A London Year is an anthology of diary entries from famous diarists, with one entry for every day of the year.

I’ll let you know my thoughts in due course – A London Year could take me quite a while to plough through, but I’m looking forward to the experience!

Do you have a favourite book about London? I’m interested in your suggestions for both fiction and non-fiction (it’s always good to add to the stack of books on my bedside table).

Thanks to Frances Lincoln for the books.
