Take a stroll through London with Virginia Woolf as your guide in this beautifully illustrated book. With a new introduction by Hermione Lee. From the docklands of the East End to the Houses of Parliament; from the bustle of Oxford Street to peaceful moments on Hampstead Heath Virginia Woolf explores the city's hidden places and draws a remarkable portrait of the daily lives of Londoners. Capturing the London of the 1930s, but also the eternal city we recognise today, this is the perfect snapshot of an extraordinary metropolis. London perpetually attracts, stimulates, gives me a play and a story and a poem, without any trouble, save that of moving my legs through the streets. . . . To walk alone through London is the greatest rest.' Virginia Woolf While it might not list the hottest restaurants and the newest boutique hotels, The London Scene gives us an amalgam of intelligence and beauty that few, if any, guidebooks provide.' Francine Prose 1930s London comes alive in these six evocative essays . . . a discerning, affectionate tour of her beloved city.' Washington Post
