Some brief overview of book

London The Biography is the pinnacle of Peter Ackroyds brilliant obsession with the eponymous city. In this work, Ackroyd brings the reader through time into the city whose institutions and idiosyncrasies have permeated much of his works of fiction and nonfiction. Peter Ackroyd sees London as a living, breathing organism, with its own laws of growth and change.

Reveling in the citys riches as well as its raucousness, the author traces thematically its growth from the time of the Druids to the beginning of the twenty-first century. Anecdotal, insightful, and wonderfully entertaining, London is animated by Ackroyds concern for the close relationship between the present and the past, as well as by what he describes as the peculiar echoic quality of London, whereby its texture and history actively affect the lives and personalities of its citizens.
